Scots boo Liechtenstein national anthem

Scottish fans booed Liechtenstein’s national anthem because it has the same tune as God Save the Queen, which they understand to be England’s national anthem.

The Scottish Football Association has apologised for the embarrassment, but strangely didn’t apologise to their own fans for the embarrassment of only beating Liechtenstein (pop. 36,000) by only one goal.

    I’m English and I was at Hampden that night with a Scottish friend. I knew the Liechtenstein national anthem had the same tune as God save the Queen. I’m a staunch anti-monarchist and had to have a little chuckle to myself at all these Scots getting themselves worked up over a piece of music.

If we are to maintain the Union, it is vital that the English feel that our identity is not just protected, but as proud as any other. Lets reclaim national pride from the so-called ‘nationalists’. Personally I favour ‘Jerusalem’ as our English Anthem, as it is a song that politically unites both left and right, albeit for different reasons. Besides that, it is an amazing musical work. But, I am open to suggestions. — Robert Halfon MP, Rob’s Blog, 22nd April 2012
