That's the trouble with this country today.

No patriotism!

In the US the national flag flies everywhere, here its seldom seen?

I agree with that, we should celebrate St George’s Day, why not when we have St Patrick’s Day celebrations?  But at the same time, get rid of Commi Day.

Of course we should celebrate St George's Day.  He was Greek after all..... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_George

 

Just like our dearly beloved Duke of Athe.... err..  Edinburgh.  :)

 

But.. all joking aside, we shouldn't be ashamed to celebrate our English (adopted) saint, or fly our English Flag.  We shouldn't let racists, Xenophobes or other idiots appropriate it. It belongs to us all.

 

But Lizzie.. what is 'Commi Day'?

Wasn't May day chosen by the workers and communists parties when they tried to start an 'International Workers Day'?

The school my sons went to didn’t acknowledge May Day, it was school as normal.

We should abandon May Day, and add a day to Whitsuntide, if anyone remembers that !

I enjoy oysters but you can have too many. Some years ago three of us took a Piper Cherokee on a flying club trip to the Quiberon peninsular in Brittany. There was a welcome at the airfield where we were each given half a dozen oysters and a bottle of local wine. One of our party was a strictly meat and two veg man so myself and other friend split his oysters between us. It was late afternoon and were driven to our hotel to await the evening banquet. After a few pre dinner Kirs we were ushered into the dining room to be greeted by another half a dozen oysters each and of course we split our friend's uneaten ones. The next course was ray wing. A whole bloody great ray wing. By that time my stomach was a little delicate so I made my excuses and left the table to regurgitate. In those days I could do that and return to the table looking fresh and eager for the next course. Not today I doubt. I still like oysters though.:biggrin:

Col, I'm not getting into a political conflict, but not everyone who voted to leave is a xenophobic racist. As I've said elsewhere, I voted remain, because I could foresee the current difficulties we're now enduring. However, deep down I want out. 

I don't mind EU residents living here. It's the outrageous and unnecessary laws that I despise, and the endless gravy train costing us billions !

As if we needed help with those! One government within living memory created over three thousand (3,023, almost one a day during their term on office) criminal offences. As an example did you know it's a criminal offence to sell a game bird that was killed on a Sunday?  selling any animal or plant, or eggs or seeds not native to this country, selling grey squirrels,  selling Polish potatoes  - the list goes on and on... and nothing to do with the EU!

Edit:

Oh and you better not cause a nuclear explosion 'cos that's naughty too.
