For England, Harry and St.George

Happy St. George's Day.

A couple of years ago I wrote about how little the English celebrate their patron saint's day and it appears little has changed since.

According to a survey earlier this week, only a third of people were aware that the celebration of St George was today.

One person determined that the occasion should be celebrated in style is Lawrence Dallaglio. Entirely coincidentally his club, London Wasps, play Bath tomorrow at Twickenham in the inaugural St George’s Day match (albeit a day late).

“I have never had a problem celebrating my Englishness," says Dallaglio.

Nice words Lorenzo.

Hang on, St George wasn't even English and Lorenzo is half Italian. Oh well, multiculturalism alive and well at Twickers.

I'll have to have a Newcastle or Fuller's ESB tonight! Thanks for the good excuse to buy English brew!
