    Re: Favourite James Bond Films

    Many true Bond fans, inc myself, love OHMSS, and regard it still as the best of all. Lazenby is actually quite good. No other Bond imo would have pulled off that last scene.

    Re: National Anthem suggestions

    Rule Britannia as a general British anthem.

    Great tune, rousing, patriotic, and is pan-British. And written by a Scotsman, James Thomson, so no complaints that its an 'English anthem'.
