The Welsh Sports Minister, Rhodri Glyn Thomas (Plaid Cymru), wants “common sense” to prevail so that the Welsh national anthem can be played alongside God Save The Queen when Cardiff City play in the FA Cup final.
In the absence of an English Sports Minister to call for an English anthem, common sense comes in the form of Cardiff City supporter Gwyn Davies:
“There’s no prouder Welshman than me but this is not the time and the place.
“It’s not Wales v England, it’s two teams in the English FA Cup final”.
Presumably both sets of fans will join together in singing Abide with Me.
