Parliamentarians gone wild

A video from, of all places, the French National Assembly:





Socialists, unhappy about reform of article 13 of the Constitution (Presidential powers, by the look of things) etc etc decided to make a scene, and at round about 4 minutes in, can be heard giving a rather spirited rendition of the Marseillaise, having tired of chanting 'democracy, democracy' and milling around in front of the presiding officer.

Not though I approve of deputies acting up, it is quite moving that the protesters chose the national anthem as a vehicle of protest. Unless our parliament was attempting to scrap the monarchy, a protest rendition of GSTQ would be rather silly, frankly.

La Marseillaise should be rewritten. It's bloodthirsty, which should be offensive to pseudo-pacifists who have no problem with Chinese public executions.

49th anniv of Orwell's death - just the sort of hypicrisy (sic) he railed against!
