Play God Save The Queen On The BBC Every Night, Says Andrew Rosindell MP

Andrew Rosindell, Parliament's most patriotic MP

A Conservative MP has launched a campaign for the BBC to play the national anthem every day.

Andrew Rosindell said God Save the Queen should play every night on BBC1 at the end of the day's programmes.

Rosindell, labelled the most patriotic MP in Parliament, has tabled an Early Day Motion calling for the policy change.


His motion says:

That this House calls on the British Broadcasting Corporation to restore the British National Anthem on BBC1 at the end of each day's programming before the switch over to BBC News 24; regrets the decision to play God Save The Queen on BBC1 for the last time on 3 October 1997; and believes that this proud tradition should be reinstated.
