    Ach well we will only get the English national anthem sung by 1 country in Russia.

    Northern Ireland wont be there to give us another 3 rendition's of a song that invites its subject's to rout the Scots.

    Here is the 6th verse of the UK anthem for those who don't know or just dinnie want reminding.

    God grant that Marshall Wade,

    May by the mighty aid,

    Victory bring,

    May he sedition hush,

    And like a torrent rush,

    Rebellious Scots to crush,

    God save the King!!!.


    Too many who voted NO dinnie ken their FN history,FACT.

    Here's a go at the 7th verse -

    God grant that Liz & Pip
    Stiff upper royal lip
    Bought out the Scots.
    Chic and Cam-ill-a
    No want to feel her
    Uglier than Delia
    Give you the trots.

    It is a United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland anthem to rout a Catholic driven insurrection against the British Crown in their effort to restore a Catholic King to the British throne. There were many Inglish Catholics involved too. Many Scots fought in the British Army against the Catholic force, often brother v. brother, father v. son, etc. A bit like the Shed v. the Fun.

    When the Jacobite Standard was raised at Glenfinnan, with the proud slogan of 'Tandem Triumphans' ( “Triumphant at Last”) by the Duke of Atholl, it was a call to arms for ALL of Scotland to restore the Stuart line.
    Sadly, for us all it was the beginning of the end of our proud nation.

    Some of us still hope!

    Irrespective of the political overtures of Atholl, it was nevertheless a bold attempt to return to the 'British' throne (not just Scotland) a Catholic monarch. It was not just a call to ALL Scotland, but to England as well. There was great disappointment when many English 'Jacobites' (yes, there were many English Jacobites. It was not confined to Scotland), didn't rise up and join the cause. It was NOT a Scotland V England war, but a British civil war. Many Scotsmen served in the British army which defeated the Jacobites. It just so happened that the seat of the uprising was in Scotland. It was led by a Pretender to the throne who could not speak a word of English, or Scots, nor Gaelic. Just think about that. It would have been like a crowd of Shed fans being addressed by Funster and trying to make sense of all that was said.

    I don't know where you get your information from mate but the bonnie prince spoke English and broad Scots.This thread will shortly be closed but can i just point out it was never meant to be political,i was merely pointing out that a country separated from Great Britian by the Irish sea will not be singing the English national anthem in Russia this summer.

    In St Nazaire , Brittany they are installing a plaque to commemorate CE Stuart's departure for Scotland from what is known locally as 'The Princes Beach'

    From this cove on the 22nd of June 1745, Prince Charles Edward embarked on the Du Teillay and sailed for Scotland in a noble attempt to restore his family to the throne.”

    I stand corrected by my good old Gunboat friend. Yes indeed, according to some researchers and contemporary accounts, Chic 'spoke English and Broad Scots very well,' though heavily accented and unintelligible to some. Perhaps a bit like 'Dundonian?' After all, when the Duke of Atholl finished his address at Glenfinnan and Charlie said 'Ah hink its aboot time fur a cup a' teh an' a peh,' would this have come across to the gathered clansmen as being a) heavily accented, b) unintelligible, c) good English, d) Broad Scots, or e) foreign, etc? Remember, there were no Funsters or taxi drehvers around back then to help them out!

    It certainly seems that Charlie's communication skills, or lack of, have found their way to the upper halls of Tannadice, where yet again a cause has foundered due to lack of finance, or the funds being appropriated for matters unrelated to supporting the front-line troops?

    Anyway, like the current teams' sharpshooting, this thread has gone way off target and Gunboat's timely reminder might just save the thread?
