    I was horrified to read in this morning's paper that the leader of Her Majesty's Opposition refused to sing the National Anthem at the Battle of Britain memorial service.
    This pathetic insult to Her Majesty and the gallant young men who gave their lives for their country shows the shallowness of this clown. He makes Russell Brand look like Gladstone.

    Yes, I am certainly far more concerned about the tax credit cut for 8.2m households.

    A noted agnostic republican did not ask God to save a monarch. I am shocked. Had he sung the national anthem he would have no doubt had just as much flack from people accusing him of being a hypocrite.

    It sure is a good thing the newspapers have this non-event to cover the front pages with instead of mentioning the cut to tax credits.

    This basically shows why Corbyn won't become prime minister. He really needs a PR/spin doctor so that he can be a little more savvy. He's already attacked the press and says he won't play their game. Well now they're going to crucify him with silly headlines and turn popular opinion against him even if what he says has merit and substance.

    I do think people who attend memorials for second world war battles should go along with the protocol of the event to properly show gratitude to such a brave generation.

    That said, he would of course have been accused of hypocrisy by the same press if he had sung, given they all know his anti-monarchist position. The words of the national anthem are hardly neutral patriotism, they are classical royalist tosh. Lots of people who salute the brave men and women who died in struggle in the war nevertheless do not support the continuation of the monarchy. The royal family is undoubtedly a key part of the traditional concept of Britishness, but sometimes concepts need to change and be reworked for a modern era. We aren't in Tudor times any more, nor are we a medieval state.

    Is this North Korea or something where if you fail to sing the anthem you are a traitor to the State??

    Amazing how people miss the point about a war fought so that we could enjoy freedoms....

    Next time England play a football international and they play the national anthem watch the camera going across the England team, about 5 of them will sing the anthem and the rest will stand there in silence. Are we going to have a big moan from the papers about this.

    Sometimes the right wing make me laugh. They always tell us how feminists and the politically-correct brigade "get offended" too often and then they get offended by stuff like this....

    The media are really showing how politics has become all about perception rather than substance. There's been little mention of the cuts to working tax credits passed through the Commons yesterday but I'm sure "anthemgate" is a worthwhile distraction...
