    I just don't think that's true!

    I think loads of people have pride in their country but the "English way" is not to make a fuss about such things - we just get on with life.

    To say we've lost our identity because we don't go round waving flags is also not true - the whole point of the English identity is that we don't do flag waving - that's the American way!

    The English way of celebrating would be something like making a nice pot of tea and some small cakes to go with it but doing this completely privately :-)

    I think you'll find I never said that we've lost our identity because we don't go round waving flags. What I do find is that so many English people consider themselves to be British, where Scots, Welsh and Irish invariably say 'Scottish', 'Welsh' or 'Irish'.

    And who's the individual who's given me neg rep over this? Or are you too much of a coward to identify yourself?

    Why don't you just give everyone else -1 and then you'll be as you were before

    Exactly! To be English is to be understated. To just get on and ignore frivolity.

    Stiff upper lip and all that, what what.

    You know the response to this supposed economic crisis should be just a cup of sweet tea. Tally ho!

    Why can't we all just celebrate the day the Byzantine Roman Soldier saved the Queen (or was it Jade Goody) from a Dragon?

    Of course Morley is a historic market town. The signs pointing to it from the roundabout near the White Rose Centre say it is, so it must be true
