It was sug­gested Land Of Hope and Glory should be rewrit­ten to re­flect modern life (Let­ters). the cor­re­spon­dent sug­gested the ti­tle Land Of wimps and Job­sworths. I’ve taken up the chal­lenge: Land of wimps and job­sworths, Land of woke and weak, How shall we ex­tol thee — Con­demned be­fore we speak! Wider still and wider Shall our guilt be yet. We can’t be­gin to love you Till his­tory’s been re­set. Land of wimps and yob­sworths, Hymned by BBC, Lock our mouths for ever And throw away the key!

Fred Ni­cholas, Lon­don W4.
