The national anthem is the most monotomous and uninspiring piece of drivel i've ever heard, and just when i thought it couldnt get any worse Lesley Garrett comes along and makes an even bigger pigs ear of it that it usually is, however well done Brad a remarkable achievement, an also remarkable achievement putting up with that wailing noise on the podium
Do you think Lesley G should have given a sample before she performed on stage.............
Dont get it a rider that DNF a couple of tours and apart from a 4th finish was outside the top 100rd in the other tours all of a sudden at 32 wins the tour
really well done Wiggs b est of luck 4 olympics
i've only gone and won the bloody raffle cheers brad for a magical 3 weeks
That has to be the worst Anthem rendition I have ever heard at 66 yearsold. For goodness sake do not let her near the Olympics!!
Bradley, Mark and all the Sky team ahve done us proud but why have the narional anthem sung by that lady
Well done Wiggins you have done us proud.
Have never liked her, got an awful voice, and i like opera! well done to bradley and mark, you were both terrific, now bring on the olympics guys and get yourselves some gold too. All the best....
Love watching the Tour de France and it was fantastic seeing Bradley Wiggins win and Mark Cavendish doing what he does best down the Champs Elysee. Now the Olympics and medals for them both.
The Sex Pistols singing ' God save the Queen ' would be less of a offensive distraction than Lesley Garrets warbling mess.
well done bradley you have done england proud
To D@13,he said safe journey home and don`t get too drunk.Hope this helps.
Leslie's voice is good - for opera. Her rendition of the National Anthem though, was dire. Could they not have just had a recording?
we D have our own National Anthem in the Isle of Man - Oh Land of Our Birth and my dog could have sung it better!
I wonder if the french purposely put a rubbish singer in for the British anthem
Lesley Garrett used to to be great, but yesterday's performace WAS dreadful - and what on earth was she wearing? With Katherine Jenkins thinking a long ball gown suitable for the Cup Final one wonders who on earth - if anyone is advising them! What is wrong with a brass band for the Anthem I wonder?
Great race, great victory. Pity about the shambolic singing which took away from a greta occasion.
I agree nobby, IOM should have their own anthem as should each constituent UK country, our nat anthem is dated and ugly and doesn't represent its peoples. However this rubbish rendition (thankfully) doesn't detract from Wiggo's great GC win. Well done to him!
why was she even there ??? this is one of the reasons i dont like opera because they murder songs , and this ones bad enough !! Good on ya Brad , well done mate , from a guy who has never watched the tour in his puff it was an exciting finish to a wonderful achievment . well done to froome and cav too , best sprinter ever . roll on the olympics !!
