The English national anthem is a lie.⠀ God never saved any of them.⠀ ⠀ It's also an objectively terrible and obsequious national jingle, and if we're going to have any pretence whatsoever that England doesn't just consider the rest of the UK its mini-empire then the UK should have a different national song to England. The fact Northern Ireland has this as its anthem is just plain tragic.⠀ ⠀ Fun fact: the British armed forces swear allegiance to protect the Queen, not the country, not the people, not even the government.⠀ ⠀ King Charles will be our best chance at a British republic and we can reclaim the enormous Crown Estate, land confiscated from the people since the invasion of William the Conqueror. ⠀ ⠀ The royals can still kick around and tourists can still come look at the palaces, they'll just have to make their living as celebrities rather than parasites on the state.⠀
