    Well it can't be that, otherwise it was wrong to support other countries.

    I think the point is that most English people don't really care either way - we're far too reserved to make a fuss :-)

    No-one stops anyone from putting up flags etc but most people aren't bothered. Add to that the fact that the cross of St George has been mis-appropriated by some pretty dodgy people over the years and I suspect that there are people who actively don't want to display it!

    What a sad state of affairs if that is true. It should not matter whether this flag has been abused. This is England's St George's Day and should be recognised as such far more than it is. It's such a shame that so few people seem to have pride in our country anymore, yet are only too happy to promote the days celebrated by other nations. Of all the British Isles, we appear to have lost our identity most of all.

    No time for flags and logo's remember this is a public holiday and everyone should now be in the pub celebrating

    Personally I'm going to be celebrating Shakespeare's birthday instead.

    I plan to do this by having a hearty dinner of meat, cheese and bread, then going to the pub for some traditional stout ale.

    Apparently the "historic market town" of morley is having a large celebration. The mayor was on the radio this morning bigging it up. I will refrain from making any comment about morley's status of historic market township as some of my colleagues live there
