It must be nice to have a day when you can celebrate the myth of a multi-theistic religion's bit player.
I bet few of the other 20-odd countries/cities he represents honour him with a day.

It is the English that are diluted by Britain, the sooner the union is dissolved along with the monarchy then England , Scotland and Wales can be the great nations they are with their own identity but with their common history which allows them to work together.
It was only in euro 1996 (football) that the St Georges flag took over from the union jack at English football matches , the ridiculous situation that English fans should wave the union jack at english football match shows wha a silly construct it is.
Look at old footage of world cup final 1966 you will see union jacks everywhere.
can we also stop singing god save the queen for the ENGLISH national anthem.
rant over.

I agree with Padster. Let our celtic cousins become socialist satellites of the EU, together with its currency. But let's keep the Queen for ceremonial purposes and tourist attraction. And of course the Pound- possibly tied to the US dollar or the Swiss franc. "Land of hope and glory" is the English anthem.

By the way i ama plastic paddy english born irish parents, i do not pass norman tebitt's cricket test......here's to these four great nations of ours, Northern ireland is going to have to make it's own decision, but with their own assembly maybe they will make the right one.

I agree with you about God Save the Queen, Padster, but until we have an English national anthem I don't see that people have a lot of choice. Unless they do what I do and quietly hum the Internationale at times when I'm among the god-bothering Queen-savers.
