St George's Day

Patrick West in today's Times doesn't like the idea of celebrating it:
There have been cries once again this year for the English to celebrate our patron saint, and for the English to take pride in our ethnicity. William Hague and Simon Heffer have done so recently, and the likes of Garry Bushell and Billy Bragg have been campaigning tiresomely on this subject for some years now. If these are the kind of people you want to hold street parties with, then you are most welcome to them.

I don't know about you, but I'd quite like to see a street party with Billy Bragg and Simon Heffer. Could be good for a few laughs...
