    Brilliant. Good to see Andrew Davis back 'in charge'. Gerald Finlay the baritone was also excellant and the young saxophonist. (whose name escapes me.Sorry.)

    I like the Proms, I'm just surprised that people like you who have no interest in classical music seem to think that this event is actually a political rally, and not a music festival. That's a tad council, to be honest.

    You clearly didn't watch it, Dordie, so let me give you a summary.

    It started off with a piece by Hindemith, a German composer. This was followed by a piece by Berlioz, who was French, then Roxanna Panufnik who is English - but of Polish descent. Then we had Stanford, who was Irish, followed by Parry who was English, but is mainly famous for composing a Socialist anthem, Jerusalem.

    After the interval, we had Saint‐SaŽns followed by Milhaud - both French. Then Richard Rodgers, who was American. Then Henry Wood, who was English and Thomas Arne. Arne was indeed English, but most people haven't heard of him because the country of which he was a citizen - Britain - wouldn't let him compose anything official, because he was a Catholic. Finally, we end with Elgar and Parry's Socialist anthem.

    In fact, the only bit of the programme that might be said to be patriotic was the final song - the National Anthem. But ironically, that's about respecting the British monarchy, which from recent threads seems to be universally despised by the rightards on BC.

    So what we had was a celebration of primarily European musical culture with a good range of countries represented. Perhaps that explains why there were so many EU flags on display.

    Can you explain how this is "sticking it to Johnny Foreigner"?

    I counted them...and the silly EU hats. There was a total of 23......
    Hardly 'many'.

    One of the EU flags had a british flag stuck in the middle of it.
    They who walk in silence hang the innocent and set the guilty free.
