That the university would even be considering this is a sign of a cultural confusion and capitulation of catastrophic proportions. Is Britain finished?
THE ICONIC God Save The Queen could be banned by a university from its graduation ceremony because the anthem “has links to far right nationalism”.
Mahamed Abdullahi, from King’s College London Students’ Union said he wanted to scrap the national anthem because it’s “outdated” and “not reflective” of the global values.
The union welfare officer took to Facebook to spout his hate for the traditional song.
In an expletive-ladened rant, the Geography graduate said: “I want to get rid of the national anthem at graduation because it’s outdated and not reflective of the ‘global’ values the college espouses.
“In the context of increasing far right nationalism across Europe and the legacy of the British empire, it’s just a bit s*** and it doesn’t even bang. Basically, f*** the nation state.”
The university admitted it is “in discussion” over the possible ditching of the anthem.
Mr Abdullahi’s comments led to a furious backlash, with many signing a petition to keep the anthem….
