    In fairness, who the **** knows the national anthem...
    I reckon most know the first verse and a not insignificant number at least one more

    I know three of the verses. Not that they're of any use to me given I don't sing it.

    In fairness I just looked it up and turns out I know the first verse, thought there was something else I was missing. Doubt I'll ever bother with the others though.

    Well I have use of all three at least 6 times a year, and two of the unofficial ones at least twice annually

    I mean, if I were to appear in a cup final I'd bother to learn it, but all I know is "God save our gracious Queen", then the whole "Send her victorious" bit. I don't think I've ever been in a position where one should sing it either.
    It makes me sad but whatever…

    Rooney seems to have difficulty with the first verse of the national anthem, and all of them with the other two

    I would assume all Tories and UKIP members would know at least two verses, and anyone from any other party who like me wants to keep the monarchy.

    Shrek may not be able to sing the whole of the national anthem, and in any case he should have been sent off this afternoon. Whilst the England team continue to sing God Save the Queen as the anthem in internationals, you would expect the captain to sing the anthem.

    Though in TSR land there is an alternative anthem for England teams.

    And did those feet in ancient time
    Walk upon England's mountains green?
    And was the holy lamb of God
    On England's pleasant pastures seen?
    And did the countenance divine
    Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
    And was Jerusalem builded here
    Among these dark, satanic mills?

    It's such a shame that members like Farage, IDS and Boris are so prominent in the Brexit camp. Listening to Gove's articulate and very reasonable appraisal of the EU almost makes me willing to go out and campaign.

    With Osbourne potentially screwed, Boris confirmed as an opportunistic **** and May just not my flavour i really do hope that Gove would run for leader and i believe he'd be severely underestimated. One can imagine how great he'd be at PMQ's.

    I love this song - I wish it could be our national anthem.

    In other news congratulations to Saracens on reaching a third straight Premiership final and being 870 minutes away from winning the double.

    Also big congrats to Exeter Chiefs and to Connacht on reaching their first league finals.

    Interestingly after my comments about Gove i had a check and it turns out he's actually topped the last two Con Home polls for leader and is now third at the bookies.

    Given how the Tory process works (MP's put 2 people forward to the party) i'm pretty certain that May will get a good mixture of both establishment and skeptic support and go through however while the electorate like Boris he is apparently relatively unpopular among MP's (in a similar way to how Trump was unpopular among senators) which means there's a chance that he won't get it, especially if May is seen as skeptic enough for some of Boris's would be supporters to abandon him. The main gap for the second candidate is therefore among the fringes of the party (far right, far left/ and also the Cameron loyalists). Gove might actually appeal to all three given his focus on social mobility, his genuine euro-skepticism (does anybody actually believe Boris is more euro-skeptic than May. Ha.) and his long term alliance with Cameron.

    Just a thought .

    After hearing about how some old ones went for a couple hundred quid (from important events), i've actually started to keep the cartoons from the Times and Telegraph.
