One Britain One Nation Anthem

Recommended Posts

And by "british" schools they mean "english" schools as the Scottish schools have already broken up for the summer.

 

What a load of nonsense.

Are you sure they only mean English?

It's a song as part of a campaign that started in 2005 and has been endorsed by various MPs of all flavours in the past. The lyrics:

 

Quote

[Chorus]
We are Britain
And we have one dream
To unite all people
In one great team
We are Britain
And we have one dream
To unite all people
In one great team

[Verse 1]
Our nation survived through many storms and many wars
We've opened our doors, and widened our island’s shores
We celebrate our differences with love in our hearts
United forеver, never apart

[Chorus]
Wе are Britain
And we have one dream
To unite all people
In one great team
We are Britain
And we have one dream
To unite all people
In one great team

 

[Verse 2]
So many different races, standing in the same place
So many different faces, moving at the same pace
We all stand together with pride in our hearts
United forever, never apart

[Chorus]
We are Britain
And we have one dream
To unite all people
In one great team
We are Britain
And we have one dream
To unite all people
In one great team

[Outro]
Strong Britain, Great Nation
Strong Britain, Great Nation
Strong Britain, Great Nation
Strong Britain, Great Na-a-tion

.. are probably only offensive to people who hate this country and/or find more pleasure in division than inclusivity. The lyrics are twee yes, but it's a song for kids, not a Dylan opus.

I don't know if the Welsh schools have broken up.  As it's the United kingdom of great Britain and northern Ireland, they aren't including them judging by the lyrics. 

 

So that's two out of four?

Doesn't even make sense, there's 2 nations in the British Isles - UK and the Republic of Ireland 🤷‍♂️

'Twee' is a most polite adjective for that empty-headed doggerel.

Seems a bit pointless to me then. 

I'd say mention them all or don't bother.

I really wouldnt bother - its all a bit weird. And why 25th June? That seems a bit random as well.

The outro is quite ironic since it has echoes of the 1930s, 40s Germany to me.

Forcing kids to sing patriotic propaganda instead of doing real things to unite all people and races in the UK.

Again playing to the lowest common denominator

Yeah I was wondering about the date myself. I can't think of any significance but of course I could be wrong
