National unity gets rid of broken societies and dysfunctional behaviour.

Its been undermined by multi-culturalism which is why our society is in the gutter when it comes to the way Britons treat each other.

Time to bring back love for ones nation and people.

Think you find most British people don't like the anthem  esp chavs and the rich and the anti monarchy

nothing wrong with teaching the anthem, the anthem use to be sang in schools, i can just about remember the national anthem being played on the TV just before the channel closed for the night. and funny enough the other week when on lates on the way home while skipping through the channels some BBC radio channels still play the anthem at closing. which was great to hear. bit of rule Britannia, Jerusalem, let it wash over you.

Just to add to the madness: I read today that 'the powers that be' are considering creating a lesson at school to teach youngsters that 'pornography is not real life' ..........................

Life is all too much ............................................. and not enough.

It is only when you form your question precisely and accurately that you receive the true answer.

My guess is that it would be the British national anthem.

I think this is a great idea.  It is not the first good idea from Gove, who's turning out to be a pretty good Education Secretary.

For years schools have been run by bleeding heart liberals who have told teachers to teach kids that they should be ashamed of their nation and its glorious past.  So we have created a whole children of kids who think that there is nothing to be proud of about this great nation.

So it's good to see the government planning on getting schools to teach kids to be proud of their nation and to teach them their national anthem.  Schools should also teach kids to fly the union flag as much of possible.  It is a beautiful flag and we need to see it flown more often instead of just during great occasions like jubilees or royal weddings.

And finally Gove should ensure that schools start teaching kids proper history, rather than just the silly PC history teaching that they are currently receiving about things such as the Suffragettes and the slave trade.  At the moment kids are leaving school not knowing when the Battle of Hastings was fought or who Nelson defeated at Trafalgar or what the Wars of the Roses were all about

Of course it would.  It would be silly to teach children the whole of the national anthem except one line.

And you have to remember that Scotland's anthem, "The Flower of Scotland", has lines referring to sending the English homeward to think again, and has those lines at the end of each verse.  Yet, unlike you, they don't let silly PC concerns stop them from singing it.

what a bloody stupid snobbish idea

No, it isn't.  It's a bloody good idea.

We've had years our liberal rulers demanding that scholls teach kids that being proud of your country may "offend" ethnic minorities and that Britain should be ashamed of her glorious past.

We now need to reverse that and have schools teach our kids to be proud of their country; that this is a great country to be in; and that more people having pride in their country will inspire people to do more good things for their country in the world's of business, sports, politics, etc.

We should teach kids the song God Save the Queen; it should be sung at the start of every school day; and children should be encouraged to display the union flag often.

it has nothing to do with offending ethinc minoritys.that is unless you class the northeast as ethnic no one i know up here could give a rodents rectum  about the queen the country the union flag or any other out dated symbol of britishness you can mention they want to escape poverty and make something of themselves .
singing god save the queen wont do that and it moves focus from the fact that historicly its the attitude that likes singing songs like that ,that has kept people dumb .broke and backward since victorian times.
