It would of been fairly easy to forget today was St George’s Day – I thought it was tomo for some reason – apart from a flag in Yates (gold star) and a few things in the clinton cards window (not at all commercially motivated) oh yeah and fruit man selling red roses (double gold star)… nowt.
Public buildings with 2 flag poles were encouraged by downing street to fly the flag on their second pole today, that something I guess.
I dug mine out and have it hanging out the window.. no doubt people walking by will think I’m a football nut preparing for Euro 2008 (am I right?) or something sporting.
I shall be heading out for a pint of cider later but I doubt many others will. Sad isn’t it?
We’re still scared to be proud of being English I think, maybe..?
