I would like to wish all Lewesians and DFL's a happy St Georges day for tomorrow.
I for one am very proud to be an Englishman and look forward to hanging my flag out my window tomorrow.
All together now:
Keep St George in my heart keep me English,
Keep St George in my heart I pray,
Keep St George in my heart keep me English,
Keep me English till my dying day.

Whilst it is perfectly right and proper to be proud of who you are are where you come from, using the name Enoch is just pointlessly provocative, which has become the norm on this forum.

Apparently St George certainly wasn't even English. Maybe we need to designate a truly English character which embodies English values and history. I suggest Guy Fawkes !,

Enoch is my name thank you very much, how rude.

As an Englishman, St.George's day is important to me. I will be taking a day's holiday (unpaid) and will probably tour Lewes visiting the various watering holes, but not over-indulging. Please feel free to join me; I will be wearing a simple shirt with the cross of St.George. Not a football shirt, and I am not a member of any racist or facist organisation. Just an ordinary Englishman celebrating our natioal day.

St George wasn't English, 'tis true. He was from what is now Turkey.
However St Andrew wasn't Scottish either, while St Patrick was English. Meanwhlie just to confuse things St Boniface, the patron saint of Germany, was from Crediton in Devon.

Ye Warwickshire lads and ye lasses,
See what at our Jubilee passes;
Come revel away, rejoice and be glad,
For the lad of all lads was a Warwickshire lad, and the lad was a Warwickshire lad,
Warwickshire lad! All be glad,
For the lad of all lads was a Warwickshire lad.

Be proud of the charms of your county,
Where nature has lavish'd her bounty,
Where much has been given, and some to be spared,
For the bard of all bards was a Warwickshire bard, and the bard was a Warwickshire bard
Warwickshire bard, Never paired;
For the bard of all bards was a Warwickshire bard.

Our Shakespear compared is to no man,
Nor Frenchman, nor Grecian, nor Roman;
Their swans are all geese to the Avon's sweet swan,
And the man of all men was a Warwickshire man, and the man was a Warwickshire man,
Warwickshire man, Avon's swan,
For the man of all men was a Warwickshire man.

I think that the march for England demonstrators/ the bnp/ukip and the like get a lot of unfair criticism, particularly around their supposed anti feelings towards foreigners. Clearly as they are so keen to celebrate a day that marks the legend of a foreigner who killed a dragon for us, then obviously they must love foreigners after all! Happy st George's day to you all!

Is it a legend - or a myth?
But yes, they all seem to be barracking for the recognition of Turkish icon who represents.. what is it.. 13 other other nation states?
A clear backing for multiculturalism, n'est pas?
