Happy St George's Day.
Patron saint of England, Portugal, skin diseases and syphillis amongst other things. Saint George
may not have been English, or even have set foot in England, but a poll suggests
many English people would like his day to be more enthusiastically marked. There's even an online petition you can sign
in support of making St George's day a national holiday.The government
shows little interest though. What's wrong with being English, and why shouldn't we celebrate our national day properly?
