Time to bring back the National Anthem


Recommended Posts

welcome to the site and im glad you got all that off your chest

one thing GSTQ IS our national anthem , yours included, and should be sung with gusto at every opportunity.

Thank you.

Some folk see GSTQ as our national anthem, and some see flower of Scotland as our national anthem. The only time GSTQ is Scotlands national anthem is when Scotland are competing as part of Britain in events such as Athletics/Tennis etc. Correct me if i'm wrong?

The problem is that those who are PRO-British do not accept that some folk prefer flower of Scotland as their national anthem and prefer to see themselves as Scottish and proceed to fire ridiculous anti-scottish remarks their way.

I for one find that embarrasing, especially from fellow Gers fans.

Most of scotland is fucked up we are british and should be proud and stand together against any threat against our nation

Rule britiania

I agree with the op (tu)

Even Oor Wullie and The Broons were good, Union Jack waving, proud Britishers.....and they speak like teuchters.

I don't agree Scotland is all that fucked up. It's just the Jacos really, and the republicans.

I have to disagree I'm afraid. I'm all for a National Anthem but not the utterly turgid GSTQ. I have not time for Royalty, The Queen and her hangers on and TBH and wish we would embrace the 21st century and rid ourselves of these non elected inbred vermin. I would like an anthem that speaks of Scotland and it's great people not some dreary affair that asks me to ask God, whom I don't believe in, to save a Monarch for some reason, that I also don't believe in.

You'd be happier on the huddleboard brendan.

Jog on.

Sadly folk like you do not realise that it's the Rangers fans that are being persecuted by your devolved powers and devolved parliament. Unfortunately the days where you could be both a Rangers fan and staunch nationalist are in the far distance. It's either one or the other, through no fault of our own. I used to love watching braveheart, but now I see it as the propogandistic, anti-english, anti-British provocative party piece of the rangers-HATING tartan trannies it really is. I hate this country for what it has become. It's the rangers for me.

Fair enough, But i am a Rangers fan and a Scotland fan, and agree that certain things with regards to the politics side of things are not going our way... but is that Scotlands fault, or the governments fault?

And i'm sorry but if you hate this country, is that not anti-scottish? It is the fact that so many 'Scottish' people are anti-Scottish that makes some Scottish people Anti-English or Anti-British. I am not Anti-English, but i am very much Scottish before i am British. (excuse that tongue twister of a paragraph)

Braveheart=Rangers hating....now I have truly heard it all.

It's a mildly entertaining period romp very "loosely" based on a dramatic part of our countries fascinating history. Only a madman would read anymore into it

You may stand corrected. We only have one national anthem.

Be embarrassed all you want, but it doesn't change anything.

Another from the hard of thinking club.... Just because I don't adhere to a British Bulldog mantra that makes a Timposter? You sound as paranoid and deluded as the maddies from the East End. Two peas in a very blinkered pod

Sorry my mistake. I think I have misjudged you. You must be about 8

You fighting a losing battle. The irony is reaking in here. It's final, we are not allowed to support our country anymore, we must (as Rangers fans) plegde our allegiance to the queen and the monarch... and by doing so we must burn our kilts (skirts) and rid ourselves of any national pride we have. We must not sing Flower of Scotland as it offends all Anti-Scottish, Scottish people.

Christ i've really heard it all.

i do not have a scottish passport im proud to be british .i proudly pay my taxes to OUR queen .

we are a sovereignty of which im a proud part .

Millions have fought and died to keep us BRITISH not German OR indeed Roman...Otherwise we would either be at mass the noo or eating fucking bratwursts for oor dinner ..

WE as Scots did help against the Romans but needed OUR BRITISH comrades to help us everywhere else .

Therefore WE ALL SHOULD BE PROUD TO BE A PART OF SUCH AN EMPIRE .not the roman empire THE BRITISH EMPIRE ..

flower of scotland is a song sung by two old geezers, you could pick a proclaimers song next but it still wont be your national anthem.

I don't think you've heard much at all.

You were told that you only have one national anthem, and you heard all of the above?

Long time lurker, 2nd time poster...

I use this site to keep up to date on the goings-on within Rangers but find it hard to resist posting when certain topics like this come up.

People seems to take their time to 'slag' "tartan-trannie, skirt wearing, haggis shortbread eating..." because of the bitter hatred shown by the tartan army towards the Rangers support?

Ok so the tartan army don't like Rangers... so what???

Does that mean that everyone on here should slag OUR COUNTRY Scotland or those who consider themseleves Scottish and not British?

I wore a Kilt to my best friends wedding a couple of weeks ago....does this make me a 'skirt wearing tartan-trannie'?... oh and there was a platter of shortbread and haggis on the go... SHOOT ME DOWN!!!

It's ridiculous that people suggest GSTQ should be our national anthem becasue we are part of Britain. We are also part of Europe, fuck it why don't pledge our allegance to the European Union and have one MASSIVE anthem for the whole of Europe?

Like it or not Scotland have a national anthem, they are a country in their own right, devolved powers and a devolved parliament, so get over it.

If you want to be a proud Brit, fine! People can accept that... so why is it so hard for these folk to accept people see themselves as Scottish before British?

You support Britain, 'the Union' yet are the quickest to slag Scotland ??? Bit contradictory if you ask me.

Cue the ' GTFO TIM' posts...

Don't be such a fkn drama queen, of course Scotland has a National Anthem and it is God Save The Queen whether you like it or not.

Staggering. Truly staggering.

If you think you pay your taxes to the Queen then you seriously need a week in therapy

What a splendid attempt at irony.

Unfortunately you fail completely, nobody has put forward the points of view you suggest.

So while yes, you have heard all that, you are the one who is saying it, nobody else.

Clicky

But yeah we could argue all day about what the Scottish national anthem is, i for one will continue to sing flower of Scotland at national events. And if a proclaimers song takes its place, then i will sing that.
