Anthem 4 England coming soon
The anthem4england website is being redesigned in Wordpress, hence the lack of posts here. Unfortunately the old Xoops-powered website was not 'fit for purpose' and had begun to fall apart at the seams.
With the England's Commonwealth Games Team recently having chosen Jerusalem to be their victory anthem for the Delhi Games by a public vote, following Scotland's example, an important precedent has been set, one that we hope other English sporting organisations will follow.
The decision to allow the public to select an English anthem didn't receive much attention (the BBC covered Scotland choosing Flower of Scotland but ignored the Jerusalem story) but thankfully it was highlighted by Greg Mulholland's call for Parliament to debate England's national anthem.
It's all too late for a new anthem to inject a bit of passion into England's World Cup campaign, but we can dream that the next time they take to the field for the World Cup it will be an English anthem that sounds out in Brazil.
