Booing God Save Our Gracious Queen

I've sung Gwlad, Gwlad, etc in Welsh, (easier to sing yn Gymreig than write, [is that mutation correct?]), but was disgusted to hear the boos for God Save the Queen.
I love Wales & feel really proud to have my Mynediad Welsh certificate, but this hatred of the British national anthem. Really? Is it necessary?

I can think of a lot more things to be offended by to be honest

Fuck. 8-0 already

Its all pantomime isn't it. Found all the theatrics more irritating - thought that footballers were the drama queens. Part of the appeal of rugby is the no nonsense, get on with it, off to the pub afterwards to have a pint together approach.

OP, sorry if I should already know the answer to the following question, but at what event did that happen?

It is poor to boo the other nation's anthem at a sporting event. Not very sportsmanlike.

Gruntfuttock Fri 06-Feb-15 20:21:13

Oh rugby. OK. Apologies for ignorance.

We're being trounced already sadz

I agree, not on. You can disagree without being rude. If it was reversed there would be an uproar.

I was too busy being distracted/thrilled by the hot young lads in their tight t-shirts. I do love a rugby man's thighs.

FYI, my ES sang both anthems. We're not Welsh, he just likes to learn them in advance so he can surprise folk with his oddness. Firmly believe that those national anthems are residing in the part of his brain where his table manners/civility ought to be.

I expect the Welsh anthem was booed as well but you couldn't hear it as they were singing so loud [gin]

Come on Wales!

Grin, not gin shock

Tinks42 Fri 06-Feb-15 20:24:48

Im a royalist but not sure I'd be cross about it to be fair. Was it at a football match?

MuttonCadet Fri 06-Feb-15 20:25:25

Hideous to boo anyone else's national anthem, what does it teach the children there of sportsmanship?

Disgusting behaviour

LadyMaryofDownton Fri 06-Feb-15 20:25:43

It's perfectly ok to boo (hating/disliking) anything British or traditionally British (English) isn't it! Booing anything else however is not allowed & will be frowned upon especially silly here in MN.

FrancesNiadova Fri 06-Feb-15 20:25:49

The Welsh anthem was sung in lusty harmonies blush
C'mon England!

AuntieStella Fri 06-Feb-15 20:25:50

Pisses me off no end that there's no English anthem.

The other Home Nations shouldn't boo what is their national anthem too.

OTOH, I did like seeing the news report on the events marking accession day.

wowfudge Fri 06-Feb-15 20:26:28

Oh I don't know Fight. Reckon I might need the gin.

FrancesNiadova Fri 06-Feb-15 20:28:56

10-5 Di'awn!

MrsTerryPratchett Fri 06-Feb-15 20:30:20

Atheist Republican here and I say it's bad form.

MuttonCadet Fri 06-Feb-15 20:31:08

Oh fuck, were the welsh booing their own national anthem (sorry couldn't give a rats arse about rugby), that's so ridiculous....

BreacaBoudica Fri 06-Feb-15 20:31:35

I'm with MrsTerryPratchett - it's rude. And I am a strident republican!
