Does this Anglo tea chat deserve to be posted in the "World Affairs' section?
I think not!

I suggest you belong there .........

Bye bye ........

And missing you already ..........

Well it wasn't meant to be an offence to you oh great gweilo leader.
But for this "hello chaps" fireside chat, the current news section does seem rather inappropriate won't you say?

Not that I disliked "Land of Hope and Glory",
but for the purpose of the current days of celebrati ...

I didn't 'watch-it' per-se ............

It was my music or something else in the background ..........

I mean WTF wants to look at the rain and the ennobled class  ............ ?

As for the choices ........

Master blaster cool ............  

Rocks my socks even though I do no longer not share youth as a privilege ..........

And still not the long awaited cardiac arrest yet  .........   

Although many around me have long gone due to other more important ailments  ..........   

So a chance here to fess up and say which is the best national anthem and why ........ ?

Is it the music or the words first ..........  ?

want some more?
I got some more.

here I chose by music, and got some more qualifying in that category.

One thing I like god save the queen as the UK's for, is that in the event of a medall or something at sport events,
you don't have to listen to the british anthem for too long.
In this regard I'd fancy the "Steigerlied" an old german worker's song for anthem.
I don't know if I could personally still remember any more than maybe 15 verses of it....

as for the worst,
suffice to say,
the two of the most irrelevant nations of the developed world qualified as a matter of course.
Australia,
and Oh Canada could unlikely be anything but improved by the makers of south park.
so search instead for "blame canada".

La Marseillaise and italian anthems are both great melodies.

Ive always thought ours and the Germans too solemn and hymn like.
