God, don’t save the Queen!
That’s apparently the view of a majority of Britain’s Labour Party members.
Only 29% of party members polled believe in keeping the British monarchy, the Sunday Times of London reported. And only one in five would be “happy” or “proud” to sing the national anthem, “God Save the Queen.”
The poll of 1,100 Labour Party members was commissioned by Mainstream, a new campaign against political extremism founded by a member of Parliament who quit the party in February.
It also found that 69% support a general strike to overthrow the Conservative government, and 70% would like the country to get rid of its nuclear weapons.
Even more shocking in a country that’s in the midst of leaving the European Union in part because of immigration issues, almost half of the poll’s respondents agreed that nations “should remove borders and people should decide where they want to live.”
Only 23% of the party members agreed that it has a serious problem with anti-Semitism, despite a rift that developed in the party in recent weeks over comments by its leader, Jeremy Corbyn and actions of other party leadership.
