Happy St George’s Day

As my own country makes steps towards unity and complete self-determination, Guido will say a prayer to St George that one day England too can achieve sovereignty and freedom from rule by foreigners.

Even your patron saint is actually a Turk and sadly you don’t get a national holiday today. With both a German-descended head-of-state and a Scots dominated government, it must all be a little demoralising. Without even your own sporting English national anthem, the Irish Rugby team easily kicked English ass, and even the English cricket team looks susceptible to the rise of the Irish cricket team.* Things could, with the prospect of Prime Minister Brown, be depressing for the English.

Nevertheless, this Irishman would like to wish all his English readers a happy St George’s day.

*We beat Pakistan.

Quote of the Day

Tobias Ellwood tells LBC…

“So Jeremy Corbyn will meet with Hamas, Hezbollah and the IRA with no preconditions, but won’t meet the British Prime Minister without her agreeing to his precondition.”
