Good man St Georges Day needs to be recognised more but we would be better having another bank holiday later in the year as April?May are chocker with Bank holidays
Not that I really care as I work shifts over weekends and Bank holidays anyday http://www.stgeorgesday.com/home
No evidence whatsoever of complaints from the Islamic community as Birmingham really got behind the event. In fact a significant number were present to enjoy the festivities.
During the World cup, and even during the Cricket World cup , there were plenty of St.Georges flags in evidence on houses and in windows in predominantly Muslim areas.
I'm not sure which is worse. The people who interfere with "Oh we must think of the sensitivities of others" or the boneheaded tools who say "I will fly this flag, and no one will take away my right to do so" when nothing has been said to criticise their decision to do so.
It's the flag of all Englishmen whatever religion or hue they are, it's time to promote it as such.
You will probably find that any complaints about celebrating St. Georges day will not come from Muslims, Islamic Society, Asians, Not Englsih etc but more the PC groups within that complain about almost everything to do with being English/British.
You see my post as bollox I see it as political satire.....
Personally if we can celebrate St Taffy Day, St Paddy Day St Jock Day, American Independace Day then why the bloody hell cant we celebrate St Georges day......
