Should we play the national anthem more?

Polls

12th January 2022

THE Government’s tech minister, Chris Philip, thinks the BBC should play God Save The Queen at the end of its programming every day. “The more we hear the national anthem sung, frankly, the better,” he said.

Chris Philp MP suggested that the national anthem was played at midnight each night, to mark the end of the day’s programming.

The national anthem used to be played at midnight on BBC1 each day, until 1997. Mr Philp says it should be returned to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

No because some people may see it as treating English people in a superior manner if we sing the national anthem more, and we want to be more inclusive to all nationalities and cultures. Nowadays, a lot of people don't even believe in God, in the UK, so the national anthem is a bit outdated too.

I don’t really think it’s necessary to listen to the national anthem every evening however, like the clapping for the NHS during lockdown it would be nice for the country to unite together

Yes we should. But I think the tech minister was probably just playing to get the government (and Boris Johnson) back into queen's good books after the 2 leaving parties on the night before Prince Philip's funeral.

what if you don't believe in god?
what if you don't like that song wakeing you up at midnight everynight?
what if you use a calm song?
what if you should be asleep at midnight?

No as some people do not believe in God and might think that you are being racist to people who do not believe in God and people who have different religions
