LONDON---Will England bid goodbye to God Save
British lawmakers agreed yesterday to consider
replacing the royalist song that serves as England s
anthem at sporting events.
God Save the Queen is the national anthem of the
United Kingdom --- made up of England, Scotland,
Wales and Northern Ireland --- and is played at the
Olympics and other events where the UK fields a
At contests where the four areas compete separately,
such as the soccer World Cup, England and Northern
Ireland generally use God Save the Queen, but Scot-
land and Wales have their own official songs --- Flower
of Scotland and Land of My Fathers.
Labour Party lawmaker Toby Perkins said adopting
an English anthem would "re-establish the idea that
the United Kingdom is a union of four separate nations
with their own identities."
Perkins told the House of Commons that said
Jerusalem, regarded by many as England s unofficial
anthem, was the most obvious choice. The song,
whose words are by mystical 18th-century poet
William Blake, vows to transform a country of "dark
satanic mills" into a "green and pleasant land" like
the ancient England that, legend says, was once
visited by Jesus Christ.
Opposing the motion, traditionalist Conservative
legislator Jacob Rees-Mogg said an English anthem
would divide Britain by encouraging "individual
"What greater pleasure can there be for a true-
born Englishman or true-born Englishwoman than
to listen to our own national anthem ---a national
anthem for our whole country, our whole United
Kingdom," Rees-Mogg said.
Under Perkins proposed change, God Save the
Queen would continue to be sung at British team
events. Northern Ireland could either stick with the
status quo or choose its own anthem.
Lawmakers agreed to hold a full House of Commons
debate in March on Perkins bill, which calls on the
government to consult the public on a new anthem.
KUWAIT CITY---The Kuwaiti government has filed
a $1.3 billion suit against 14 board members of the
Gulf state s Olympic committee, including the influ-
ential head of the world association of national
Among those named in the suit is Sheikh Ahmad
Al-Fahad Al-Sabah, the president of the Association
of National Olympic Committees. The sheikh is also
a senior member of the IOC and head of the Olympic
Council of Asia.
The suit was filed Tuesday by the Public Authority
of Sports against the board members of the Kuwait
National Olympic Committee. It accuses them of
corrupting the Olympic movement in Kuwait and
interfering in sports affairs.
The International Olympic Committee suspended
the Kuwaiti body in October on grounds of govern-
ment interference in sports.
The suspension could keep Kuwaiti athletes from
representing their country at this year s Olympics in
Rio de Janeiro. (AP)
