Booing the national anthem

I have just seen a video of Liverpool fans booing the national anthem at Wembley yesterday. Why? I genuinely don't get it. What's the story behind it? Do you agree with it and if so why? Are you embarrassed by it?

It’s a lack of respect, plain and simple, and nothing to do with our head of state.

Liverpool was a sh!te-hole in the 80’s because of the chronic mismanagement of the city by individuals such as Derek Hatton whose policies bankrupted the city and only after being ousted by Neil Kinnock was Liverpool able to rebuild, and how well it has performed since.
You are always going to find a minority clinging onto the past with their whining self pity and self deprecating views, the majority do not, and would not support their actions during the national anthem.

Agree.

As unionists in Dublin to support Irela Nd at rugby, we stood and bowed our heads or kept quiet.

Its called respect.


----------------------------------------------------------------------

Who are we supposed to be respecting?

The people of the county where the anthem is played.

The Irish anthem is about republican gunmen.

Not really the point though as far as anthems ate concerned.

It is the principle.

But boo away.

Yea...go that route.

An anthem is words, representing people of a country, and booing it spits on the people beside you...I am talking antemd on general het, ad I am loyalist, but not royalist.

It is just human decency and respect tbh.

If you don't like it, fair enough...just Fook up.

When you boo the national anthem at Wembley, then forget about being Scouse.

Nope.Did I say that the actual words represent people, or the anthem itself??
Just as the Scots anthem about sending the English back home to think again is not representative of all Scot.

But to boo it shows disrespect for Scots in general, who may not agree with all of the words.

Do you boo all anthems btw?

Why not boo the Irish one as it "represents" republican militants?

And if the words to The Queen can be picked over, so can the Irish anthem, sing by the ra.

For balance sake .😉
