Cristina Aguilera has recently sung the national anthem at the Superbowl of American football in the USA. She freely re-interpreted a few words which cost her boooos from the audit.
Jumping across the pond to the older Anglosaxon and multi-cultural country, the UK, the prime minister David Cameron has recently downplayed the role of multiculturalism in his political agenda. Is this to minimise the probability of mistakes in the event a non-British native sings the national anthem in the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics in London!? Perhaps a new acronym, short words which are dear to Anglosaxons, could effectively summarise this: NIMA which stands for Not in My Anthem!
