MPs give their reasons

Two MPs that have signed the motion in support of Jerusalem have been kind enough to get back to me:

I agree with your reasons for our need for an English anthem (though, as a republican, I dislike God save the Queen). Jerusalem has words that inspire the wish to work for a better country, together with a rousing tune – and I enjoy singing it!

LYNNE JONES MP

It is a great song which has a link with the Labour movement and was sung at Labour Party Conferences in the past.

Mike Gapes MP

Hopefully the others are replying by snail mail.

One dire dirge was ditched; one rousing anthem raised aloft. Cricket fans replaced the deferential dross that is God Save The Queen with the soaring strains of Jerusalem. It’s the perfect choice for a national anthem – with the perfect pedigree.
