Brexit Party MEPs turn their backs in European Anthem at opening session of European Parliament

Embarrassing and somewhat childish. It will no doubt tempt other countries to do the same when they hear our anthem...although I think they are more grown up than that.

In 1926, the Nazi Party deputies turn their backs on the speaker in the Berlin Reichstag. I wonder if they see any comparison?

Or is it, as some might have it, role reversal ;)

UKip did exactly same when they represented UK in Brussels.
Nothing new and nothing to get wound up about.

My favourite bit a EU drama involved the late Rev Ian Paisley who had to be physically manhandled out of the chamber while shouting at top of his voice when Pope John Paul was making an address.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
