BBC Music columnist makes a strong case for The Last Night of The Proms to go Woke....nah only kidding, ''They form a kind of unholy trinity: Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory and Rule, Britannia!'':
Why is Land of Hope and Glory offensive? For that matter why is Rule, Britannia?I've never actually understood why "Jerusalem" is so popular at these jingoistic events - it's actually a condemnation of England in the 19th century and of the Industrial Revolution.
Do we need to alter the lyrics to God Save the Queen next? This is asinine.
