St George's Day

It's today, apparently. Does anyone really care? I know I don't. The only reason it's become an issue recently is Guinness' shameless plundering of St Patrick's Day to flog their product to the masses and some people getting uppity. The Irish can celebrate on St Patrick's Day, goes the theory, why can't the English celebrate on St George's? Well you can. Go ahead. Knock yourself out if that's your bag. Down 14 points of crap lager, puke all over the town centre, chuck some plastic garden furniture at a foreign riot copper - do all those things that symbolise Englishness. Just do it quietly and don't foist it on the rest of us.
