In an era when hatred and prejudice is strong, is this not just another example of feeding this? encouraging this? A way of blinding people against the utter destruction of society that is occurring under the ridiculous guise of uniting them?
Are you proud of what you're wearing? Of what you last ate? Of the colour of your eyes? Or are these just facts? Are you proud of being British? Or is that again, just a fact.

Maybe you're just happy, lucky or content instead.
So no, my children won't be singing the national anthem in school, just like in a none religious school we ensure they realise as Atheists, they don't have to join in prayers either. It's not inspirational, it's just another attempt at control. It's arrogant and reeks of conformity. We are not and will not be sheeple. If you want to make the children proud, do something to inspire it.
