|Mergers and Acquisitions|
Then, after a swift stretch of the legs and my ablutions, I returned to the gogglebox to see the run-up to the start of the England - France game.
Now one of my bugbears: do the English know who they are?
At the start of every rugby match they will insist on singing the (anti-Scottish) God Save the Queen which is, of course the British national anthem (despite being against the Scots). That's why the Northern Irish sports teams sing God Save the Queen (because they don't have their own anthem, as a Protestant planter-enclave, they sing the British one to show they don't think they're Irish).
The English anthem is, of course, Land of Hope and Glory.
Why don't the English know that? Does it really take a Welshman of part-Irish extraction to tell the English what their national anthem is?
Now it's almost half time and France are holding the English at 9-9... Vive La France ;-)
