    How really did for the Dragon?

    After a tweet earlier today from Merlin John, "How do you say, tactfully, to English friends 'There was no St George. Why did you kill our dragon? Happy St George's Day!'" I responded with, "HSE said it was a fire risk and had to go. Sorry."

    It made me think though ... in this day and age of blaming politicians what would their excuse be?

    Lib Dem - "The Dragon is not a suitable deterrent and had to go. It is a waste that all of those virgins are going to the Dragon when they should be going to our regular army instead."

    Labour - "Neither we nor the unions have been happy about the Dragon taking away the jobs from local lads working in the smelting industry. Whilst we respect the super-heated breath of dragons, the time-honour craft of local industry is vital to our great nation."

    Conservative - "The Dragon requires very particular care and management, which we have always felt could best be served by the commercial sector, who have a wide range of experience dealing with mythical creatures. I admit that it is a shame that the Dragon had to be gotten rid of but the eating of the management team meant that the company owners, who were the sole owners of the Dragon, felt that to cut their losses they would remove this mythical creature from their inventory and we would not want to stand in the way of a commercial entity like this."

    BNP - "We respect that the Dragon was a mighty beast but it is not native to this country, we did not invite it over and so it had to be removed so that our native mythical or wild creatures had the freedom to run amok and kill people."

    UKIP - "The Dragon was not killed by true Englishmen and we think it was done in the days of the Normans ... and they are pretty much French ... and France is next to Belgium ... so once again it is down to the mismanagement of the situation by the bureaucracy of the EU over in Brussels!"

    I'm sure there are many more possible answers ...

    Who do *you* think did away with the Dragon?

    As far as I am aware.....

    I believe the Dragon had flown over from a mythical place, that was across a huge expanse of water. When it arrived, this mythical place sent loads of soldiers as re-enforcements for the Dragon.

    However, the soldiers got a bit confused about their objectives, and proceeded to bomb the Dragon out of existence. This helped the mighty St George, no end, and when the fighting was over, and the Dragon was slain, St George thanked them, and off they set to sail back home.....to that place that we now refer to as U.S.A.

    That conservative response can't be right. There isn't a single mention of the word 'change'.

    It needs to be ended "This is a change for the better, dont trust the others"

    That was brilliant Tony
