Liarbore gets its teeth into the national anthem...

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by Squiddly, Dec 3, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. ...Yep folks, you read it right.


    Not content with transforming the UK from top to bottom in the space of a single decade, it seems that yet another labour face (well, ex labour face) wants to stamp his mark on the country by making the national anthem...

    ...Want to guess?

    More snappy?
    More uplifting?
    More dramatic?
    Louder?
    Longer?
    Or More inclusive?

    That's right, apparently our national anthem isn't Inclusive enough.
    Heaven forbid that England be allowed it's own anthem, especially when Wales's national anthem is only "Traditional" and Scotland's is only "up for discussion".

    Think they'll get round to taking the "Great" out of "Great Britain" ?

    They've done it in every other way, why not in name too :x .
     
  2. And later:

    They could have a point here, after all, "Dieu et mon droit" is a bit French. Perhaps "Gott mit uns" would sit a bit better.
     
  3. Ive said it before and Ill say it again.
    Cunts, the lot of them.
     
  4. Arbeit Macht Frei?

    Praise Be to Allaah?

    Got me giro mate, innit?
     
  5. Qui bono?, perhaps? Or maybe Fujiama, given this current lot's apparent attitude.

    On the subject of Arbeit macht frei, I'd suggest that for those of us who pay taxes, Arbeit macht andere frei is more accurate, if less resonant.
     
  6. That would look good carved in marble or granite over the entrance way to parliment and the old bailey.

    BBC news will never be the same again. :)
     
  7. "F*ck you, I'm alright"?
     
  8. "I know my rights!"
     
  9. Allah W'Akhbar
     
  10. actually, I have to say, it is a singularly dull and flaccid tune. Whenever I hear the Marseillaise or Land of my Fathers I actually feel something, but God Save the Queen is a musical wet fish.
     
  11. Good God! What's your real name, Jean-Phillipe Evans?

    Well you could always fcuk off and be french if you prefer.
     
  13. Yes, but it's usually taken far too slowly and thus winds up sounding like a funeral dirge. Put a little bit of life into it and it sounds almost jaunty (It's also over quicker, which can be considered a small mercy for those who regard the tune as beyond salvage).
     
  14. God Save The Queen is our national anthem, it'll never reach No1 in the charts but it's our national anthem, it does not need changing. It's British those who don't like it or want to change it sod off somewhere else.

    I love our national anthem, and I may be mistaken, but is it not treasonous to change the wording?

    Allegedly, this is what the Labliar party want it to say, to be inclusive of those who wish to be included in our customs and manners, and to allow them to feel some pride in their multiculturalist identity.

    Allah save our gracious Broon,
    Long live our noble Broon,
    Mohammed save the Infidel!
    Send them victorious,
    Unhappy, inglorious,
    Long to denude us;
    of all that has been!!

    O Allah their God arise,
    bomb-blast the infidel
    And make them crawl;
    Confounded our politics,
    Frustrated by knavish tricks,
    On Thee our hopes we fux,
    Allah help us all!

    Thy choicest gifts we rob
    On infidels be pleased to pour;
    Napalm and nails;
    Nobody defend our laws,
    And ever give us cause
    To pack up and shift abroad,
    Allah save the Broon!

    Not in this land united,
    But be Allah's mercies divided,
    From shore to shore!
    Lord make the nations see,
    That men brothers used to be,
    Now form chav families,
    The wide world over.

    From every latent foe,
    From the assassins blow,
    We roll over too keen,!
    O'er mine armies extend,
    A hacked budget for defence,
    Our politocos are no friends,
    God please take Broon!

    Lord grant thunderbolts from space
    May by thy mighty aid
    Labour's falling bring.
    May their sedition hush,
    And like a torrent rush,
    Incompetent Porridge Wogs to crush.
    God save the Queen!
