God Save The Labour Party

­Can we cast out mind back to before we heard about David Cameron doing unspeakable things to a dead pig there was a day when the leader of the Labour party decided not to sing our national anthem. A week is a long time in politics and for Jeremy not bothering to sing an obscure song became a PR disaster, but why, it’s a bizarre song that lyrics are not old school but ancient and have little relevance to huge numbers of the British people.

Brittan is a country that is full of atheists in fact 42% of Brits don’t believe in God.  The idea of God saving the Queen from flood, fire or Jeremy Corbyn is just silly to them; they think the Queen would be better off calling the fire brigade or sending in a rabid tribe of Daily Mail readers beating up Jeremy so he can’t steal all her glittery hats and save her from a seriously downgraded council house on an estate full of the little people.

If there is a God what would he save the Queen from? Jeremy Corbyn seems to be about her only threat. If there is a God I would rather he, she or whatever concentrated on refugees or families like mine who are about to be a lot poorer thanks to the Tories not a woman who flashes her wealth, has a big, expensive family, jewels, glittery hat and opulence to the people who pay for it, when thousands are queuing up for food banks this woman just seems tacky, worse still she talks patronisingly about austerity while wearing a crown worth millions, most poor families I know have pawned their gold trinkets. The anthem talks about the Queen as if England is a family, if this was true she would have sold her jewels on E bay a long time ago.

 Read the words, by verse two God Save the Queen, it’s as bloodthirsty as a Slipknot song. Most of us don’t know the lyrics past the first verse and if we have ever had to sing this song by the time we get to verse two most of us are humming tunelessly and red faced. The words we are missing talk of scattering our enemies and world domination, God Save the Queen is not just royal worship but a battle cry.

Is this song relevant to millions of the Queens subjects? One million of the showed up to a record breaking march against the Iraq war in 2003 so a bloody song about our enemies isn’t relevant to these people. .

Look at the people who need God’s help, the crying refugees, crying children clutching to teddy bears, displaced millions with nowhere to go now can many British people sing this song without cringing? So what goes does “Scattering enemies” do, it simply hurts the innocent.  

Jeremy Corbyn shouted for many by not singing this song and the headlines shouted this man was disrespectful to Britain. Look at Jeremy, he may look like a scruffy dreamer but he shows resect to everyone but a woman who has everything by a random accident of birth.

I received an e mail from the Labour party asking me what I would like to say to our government, this is democracy and he asked Cameron to answer his public, thousands of other people did the same. Jeremy stood up and asked questions from ordinary people, this shows a man more interested in people’s lives that his own ego.

Jeremy knows about respects and he saves it for the British ordinary, poor and struggling and the people who need saving and someone on their side. So ignore the obvious signs of respect like buying a new suit and signing a nasty song loudly and look a litter deeper at the rebels, the dreamers and those who look a little deeper at the evil glitter at the heart of our establishment, they may just help the people who need saving.

And here are the words

1. God save our gracious Queen,
Long live our noble Queen,
God save the Queen!
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us;
God save the Queen!

2. O Lord our God arise,
Scatter her enemies
And make them fall;
Confound their politics,
Frustrate their knavish tricks,
On Thee our hopes we fix,
God save us all!

3. Thy choicest gifts in store
On her be pleased to pour;
Long may she reign;
May she defend our laws,
And ever give us cause
To sing with heart and voice,
God save the Queen!

4. Not in this land alone,
But be God's mercies known,
From shore to shore!
Lord make the nations see,
That men should brothers be,
And form one family,
The wide world over.

5. From every latent foe,
From the assassins blow,
God save the Queen!
O'er her thine arm extend,
For Britain's sake defend,
Our mother, prince, and friend,
God save the Queen!

6. Lord grant that Marshal Wade
May by thy mighty aid
Victory bring.
May he sedition hush,
And like a torrent rush,
Rebellious Scots to crush.
God save the Queen!
