I thought it was weeks ago. Means nothing to me but I see some of my Facebook 'friends' (actually former schoolmates) joining groups complaining that the local council banned the celebrations.

It's still just about St George's Day here, so all the best for the day (less than an hour left now!)

Happy St. George's Day to all my friends back home in Blighty.

In London yesterday on business - spotted a small band of Crusaders and a Morris dancing troupe. I think the former were looking for a bar along Fenchurch Street where they could get served, and the latter were jumping around, clashing sticks and generally making a spectacle of themselves.

St George's Day is a nothingness of a celebration, in my opinion, unlike St Patrick's Day, where the association with alcohol guarantees success.

Well happy st georges day. Why not. Weve been succesfully embarrassed and sneered at to be patriotic in england. And now folk are scared to be.

Wait for one of the anti patriotic political brigade to come on here and tell us he was really a frenchman who raped women and burned villagers and was racist and the subject of a medievel paedophile investigation when he died !!!

"Happy Saint George's Day" indeed. They're even celebrating it in the country of "Catalonia", where they buy a book and a flower for some reason. Folklore is fine for those who like "The Wicker Man" soundtrack, but let's investigate the facts. There are none. So we tell the kids that "George" (of the bloody jungle for all I care) fought a "dragon" (highly unlikely -no bones found amongst the very real Stegasauri). The end. That's it? What a hero!

HOWEVER, as he is celebrated today in Catalonia, he must have existed. Some say he was a French kid-fiddler (not violins), and archaeologists have demonstrated that Catalonia is "quite near" France, so it must be true. Then he went to England. Oh yeah, across the channel in a "boat".

Wasn't he burned at the stake anyway? Should have been.

England's patron saint should be Cuthbert, if we're going to bother at all.

It struck me as odd the other day that Scottish and Welsh Nationalists, by and large, are well to the left of the political spectrum, while English Nationalists are to the right.

Not sure what that signifies, if anything.
