A1 Brigand, about time we celebrated St Georges day, could never understand why the English seem to fall all over themselves come Paddys day.

Anyway good excuse for me to go for a beer at lunchtime

I am actually rather proud of.

A. Being a Geordie

B. Being English.


Collectively we need to ignore the PC lot and celebrate being English.

Personally I'm Manx ie from the Isle of Man but always think St Georges should be done in style

From another Geordie, Englishman and fervent Royalist too , Amen to all the above.

But Chris you're entitled to be as proud as anyone else - in particular dont brave Manx soldiers, sailors and airmen fight in the Armed Forces etc.

Also the IOM have shown great perception in not joining the EU, dont follow silly speed limits nor breathalysers I believe.

Yeah, Happy St George's Day everyone.

I'm proud to be English, proud of our history, ... and also proud we Geordies supported King George when we did.

Might have been Cockneys in kilts - you can owe us one ...

Have a good day

Thanks to fellow Englishmen and fellow Geordies.




WHAT have I done for you,
England, my England?
What is there I would not do,
England, my own?
With your glorious eyes austere,
As the Lord were walking near,
Whispering terrible things and dear
As the Song on your bugles blown,
England--
Round the world on your bugles blown!

Where shall the watchful sun,
England, my England,
Match the master-work you've done,
England, my own?
When shall he rejoice agen
Such a breed of mighty men
As come forward, one to ten,
To the Song on your bugles blown,
England--
Down the years on your bugles blown?

Ever the faith endures,
England, my England:--
'Take and break us: we are yours,
England, my own!
Life is good, and joy runs high
Between English earth and sky:
Death is death; but we shall die
To the Song on your bugles blown,
England--
To the stars on your bugles blown!'

They call you proud and hard,
England, my England:
You with worlds to watch and ward,
England, my own!
You whose mail'd hand keeps the keys
Of such teeming destinies,
You could know nor dread nor ease
Were the Song on your bugles blown,
England,
Round the Pit on your bugles blown!

Mother of Ships whose might,
England, my England,
Is the fierce old Sea's delight,
England, my own,
Chosen daughter of the Lord,
Spouse-in-Chief of the ancient Sword,
There 's the menace of the Word
In the Song on your bugles blown,
England--
Out of heaven on your bugles blown!


William Ernest Henley

St George - a Roman Solider that never set a foot in the British Isles. At least Paddy was an Irish Bishop.

St Paddy in fact allowed Lester Piggott to get his leg over. (Racing aside for those who remember the Epsom Derby of the 50s and 60s)

He was a Celt from the Marches appointed to Ireland.

It's exactly that level of political correctness that causes 90% of the issues.
