Garrison Games 2

I mentioned previously the kerfuffle over the English rugby team coming to play in Croke Park. Much of the controversy centred on whether it would be appropriate for God Save The Queen to be sung in a temple of Irish nationalism.

Thanks to my learned colleague Wood, I realise that this issue may not arise in the future. Some David Kitchens fellow has started a petition on the 10 Downing Street website to replace God Save The Queen with a far less offensive tune: Gold by Spandau Ballet.

Thus far over 5,000 of his fellow Britons have signed: Gold Anthem
