Forbidden to Stand for “God Save the Queen”

October 21, 2013

According to the Daily Express:

A 74-YEAR-OLD artillery veteran was forbidden to stand up for the national anthem at a concert in case members of the audience fell into each other!

This daft edict was issued by Suffolk’s Bury St Edmunds Council which later…said the guidelines had been misapplied.

I cannot see that it is ever appropriate to deny people the right to show respect to Queen and country

…please could whoever drew up the guidelines answer the following question: on how many occasions during the past six decades have its citizens been injured by falling persons during God Save The Queen?
