St Georges Day

Today is St. Georges Day, which should be a day of flags, street parties and even a Bank Holiday - that is, a day off for everyone. However.

I know exactly what is going to happen this year, there will be token gestures here and there, but for the most part, it WON'T be celebrated because, yup, we don't want to offend the immigrants or foreign nationals.

F'k the lot of em I say. Today is a day where you should be PROUD to be British. If you don't like that fact, there's the airport, there's your flight home, buh-bye now, don't come back.

St Patricks Day is celebrated all over the place because.... Erm... So why is St Georges Day not? Last year I asked Jaysen what they did in class.

"We talked about Hindu Gods"

WTF?? We'd rather learn about every other bastard, but not our own countries heritage. People get in trouble for flying the St George Cross. HOW THE HELL can it be considered racist to fly the flag of your own country when you're already in your own country?! We make so many sacrifices for every other bastard in the world, but what do we get in return?

Accused of being racists and not taking the time to see how our actions can offend the minority.

It's really not that difficult. If you don't want to learn our language, get a job and accept that you are guests in our country, please kindy GET LOST.

So, to everyone, regardless of you being black, white, brown, turquiose or that funny shade of white-that-isn't-white that has it's own name. Happy St Georges Day.

I just love the fact that St George was Turkish/Persian born in Roman times.
Also, patron to butchers, herpes, lepers, sheep, skin diseases and syphilis. Nice.

Proud to be ENGLISH!
Wales and Scotland have their own Patron Saints.

It won't be long before we won't be able to fly the American flag here either. It's getting WAY ridiculous here too. We don't want to offend any outsiders but we can offend each other all we want. UGH! I feel for ya!

But since I'm an American (actually a Viking Mexican American - but I digress) which means I'm an outsider to England, then it's OK for me to wish you a Happy St. Georges DAY!!!! WOO-HOO!!! Par-tay!

Can I borrow this post next year at Christmas, Easter, etc? It is crazy. Pack up! Move out! That's my motto!
