    It's not called pomp and circumstance, perhaps it is in america but in the UK (our Royal Family after all) it is called Land of Hope and Glory, and yes it does actually have words. Further it is not used just as a superficial splash of faux splendor as in american graduations but has actual history, proper use and a decent name.

    Britain as a country will cease to exist in 10 years if things don't change. A reporter Tommy Robinson is jailed for reporting news. Yet, British people are more WOW'ed by a dark ages concept of royalty (special ruling blood). So Britain has joined Russia, China, and North Korea as one of the most communist governments in the world today, where reporters are arrested for telling the truth.
    How do you know your government is communist? When you start jailing reporters for proving the news.
