So do you speak for everyone from my city? I’m born and raised in Liverpool and still live here . I’m not going to start arguing about politics because this is a football forum, but I don’t go along with this ‘ we are not English, we are Scouse’ bollocks.Firstly, we are not English, we are Scouse.
The British Government and establishment has let the Club and the city down badly.
In the 80's, Under Thatcher, she took lots of investment out of Liverpool and thus created lots of issues within the city - amongst a whole string of anti Liverpool things that were done.
Then do we need to mention Hillsborough? Probably the biggest cover up operation in the history of Great Britain - were it not for the will and spirit of the people, that would never have come to light. It was criminal on the grandest level.
So if booing the National Anthem is not justified, and people want to pick up on that - so be it. But just research what happened with Hillsborough, and give me a single reason why that wouldn't make anyone anti government/establishment?
A delicate subject, but completely justified in my opinion.
I’m English from Liverpool and proud of it and if that upsets anyone, then tough. And booing the National Anthem is not justified, ever!
PS. I don’t need to research Hillsborough either, I was there.
