What an absolutely mega humungous durge our national anthem is .
Let's start a campaign to be rid of it.
Let's replace it with the Thunderbirds theme .
Or what would you put in its place.

This is off Wikipedia and sums it up for me.

“The national anthem of England is usually taken to be the same as that of the United Kingdom as a whole—"God Save the Queen", but in 2016 some MPs felt that England should have its own distinct anthem with the result that there have been discussions on the subject in the UK Parliament”.
Bottom line,The UK national anthem is the English national anthem. I would like it to change. That said and interestingl, Flower of Scotland is not the official national anthem of Scotland, yet.And I thought it was

Lets make the PM the head of the country then we could have The Stranglers
Cos he's alright in the city

He's just hanging around (hanging around)

For me, Land of Hope and Glory should be the anthem.

Seeing it performed, with audience at Last Night of The Proms stirs something inside

From 4:45, but treat yourself to the whole thing. Shivers.
