St George for England

It’s Mothers Day today in England, but some even better news was anounced in the papers this moring - In April, our London Mayor, Boris Johnson, has arranged a week of festivities in the capital to celebrate St George’s Day and the achievements of England and the English. Yay!!!

In recent years we have been banned from displaying the English flag on the grounds that it is racist and could offend Muslims because of St George’s association with the Crusades.

And Boris Says:

‘St George’s Day has been ignored in London for too long but I’m truly pleased to announce some fantastic events to mark this occasion. We have much to be proud of in this great country. England has given so much to the world, politically, socially and artistically.

‘St George’s Day is a time to celebrate the very best of everything English and the Cross of St George will proudly fly outside City Hall on April 23. I look forward to hopping on a Routemaster and encouraging everyone to join in the fun and celebrate England’s great patron saint.’

The whole family cheered when I read this out at the breakfast table – it’s about time we were allowed to celebrate being English in England instead of bending over backwards to accommodate everyone else who chooses to live here. In any event, I doubt it’s the other creeds and religions who give a hoot anyway – but our creepy, apologist Government who have apparently passed a new law – if it’s fun, and people are in danger of actually enjoying themselves - ban it!

I signed the website asking for support too, and we'll be there Boris!!

If I lived down south I'd be there too. I wholeheartedly agree that England should celebrate itself!

Morhers' Day? Personally I prefer to stick to tradition and call it Mothering Sunday.
