As usual St George’s Day goes by almost un-noticed by the great unwashed, with a few (and I mean a few) noticable exceptions. I at least made the effort, I went out and drank as much as I could in the name of celebrating the day that is a celebration of a Roman Soldier, that objected to the murder of christians, and paid for it with his life.

Not sure that he ever even visited the UK, so quite why he is our patron saint i really have no idea, anyway “Cry God For Harry, England and Saint George”.
