Perhaps Labour should appoint a Ceremonial Representative

Although I am a monarchist I am not all that bothered by Jeremy Corbyn's refusal to sing the National Anthem:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-34263447

I would much rather have sincere politicians than ones who just do and say anything to get power.

Perhaps Labour should appoint a Ceremonial Representative to represent the party at state occasions, allowing Jeremy Corbyn to get on with the serious issues of policy.  Peter Mandelson might be a good candidate.  He likes dressing up and swanning around and singing anthems.

I have always thought that party leaders should not be bigging themselves up at ritual state ceremonies - it only goes to their head.
