'God Save The Queen'  is a depressing dirge and should be dropped as the National Anthem of this country.

Why is this idea important?

The current National Anthem is not inclusive and does not represent the diverse Britain we have today.

It calls upon a metaphysical construct few of us believe in to preserve the holder of a position we would not create today and only retain due to inertia.

It cannot be sung with feeling by anyone who is an atheist, agnostic, pantheist or a republican no matter how patriotic they may be.

We need an anthem that can raise the spirits of our sportspeople prior to games, and inspire fear in the hearts of their opponents.

We need an anthem that that all can sing with all their hearts.

We need – 'The Ace of Spades' by Motorhead.
