It seems that yet again there is farce at the Olympics football tournament. Having already offended the North Korean football team by showing the wrong flag and then by stating that Joe Allen was English when he is Welsh is it really surprising that we now have London media driven hysteria over who sings the national anthem?
Welsh and particularly, Scottish players of both sexes have refused to sing the national anthem. They see it as the English national anthem, therefore they do not sing it. That should be their choice. However, at the moment, there seems to be an air of malevolence whenever anyone so much as criticises the Olympics. Take Mr Romneys innocent reply to a reporter about all the cock ups with the security firm G4s. All of a sudden we have Boris Johnson stirring up a fervent crowd of Londoners into a fury in some kind of perceived snub! All it needed was Alf Garnett to add a torrent of bigotted abuse to finish ot off!
