Germans not amused, I have to admit I Laughed, thought it was funny.

Happens on occasion. A while ago, the Borat anthem has been played at some sporting event in Kuwait instead of the proper Kazakh one.

I think one can say that the Deutschlandlied pre-dates the Third Reich, the words having been written in the 1840s and Haydn's tune in the 1790s. It was adopted as National Anthem in 1922 by the Weimar Republic and in present times they omit that first verse (and the second)

I have to say I'm pretty jealous of most countries' national anthems, compared to our own. I even like that jaunty little number the Italians play before Six Nations rugby matches. An exception is that dreadful load of old tosh that the Scots adopted a few years back - talk about harking back to pre-history almost.

Took me a while to work out your photo Tu 114 - an understandable mistake!

Thought the Czech photo was a reference to Road to Hell, but took some time to get there.

Probably incorrectly.

Not sure why the Czechs are so upset about migrants. They seem very well integrated into society.......

If you don´t mind, it´s not always about immigrants and the Daily Mail. There are other threads at your disposal for this subject.

It's certainly a dreadful rendition of a middling maudlin song.
