Happy St George’s day

I was reminded by a contributor to celebrate St George’s day. I do indeed, and wish you a happy one. Never let it be said that this site is intimidated by political correctness into ignoring England’s day. We should be proud of our flag and history. I was too taken up with the aftermath of the debate and with the need to get out on the campaign trail this morning to do the honours then.

    A Bank Holiday to celebrate our National Day would be appropriate but I'm not holding my breathe.

    I was out and about on St. George's day. I noticed that a large number of those who were displaying flags on their houses and cars were an older generation, and people of respectability reclaiming an ancient custom. It was good to see in place of football supporters or extremists. The next trick will be to involve children, but they are doubtless excluded under grounds of criminal and health and safety checks. I was also pleased to see the Archbishop of York once again urging celebration of the day on both patriotic and religious grounds.
