    Firstly I have nothing against Royalists or Christians however I believe "God Save the Queen" is a bit outdated for our national anthem. Britain has become much more diverse so I think we should have a more appropriate national anthem to represent the people of Britain, rather than the monarch.

    Would you want the national anthem changed and if so, what would you change it to?
    I love it. It represents our heritage and history. Plus the royal family plays a big part in British culture whether people like it or not. Ask anyone in any country what the first word they think of when you say Great Britain is and I am sure 95% of people will say 'The Queen'.

    Plus yes we have lots of religions but we still follow a Christian callender. Most of our bank holidays have Christian roots and imagine if we didn't celebrate Christmas or Easter there would be an uproar from all religions. It is a part of our culture.
