QUEENSLAND state school students will for the first time be encouraged to sing the New Zealand national anthem to commemorate Anzac Day.
Premier Anna Bligh will write to principals asking them to play God Defend New Zealand, along with the Australian national anthem, at school ceremonies.
Does she suggest that we sing all the anthems of the allies on all the days where we pause to think of those lost in wars?
How much of a step is it before we must learn the national anthems of our old enemies?
God help Anna!
