The Daily Mail love a bit of meat and Boris has just handed them a steaming plate of it:
"London Mayor Boris Johnson is to defy the politically correct brigade by staging a week-long festival in the capital to celebrate St George’s Day, with the red and white cross of England’s patron saint flying proudly from his City Hall offices."
Gor bless you Bozza!
"The move follows a series of incidents in recent years in which people have been banned from displaying the English flag on the grounds that it is racist and could offend Muslims because of St George’s association with the Crusades."
Bloody party-pooping Muzzos.
"Mr Johnson told The Mail on Sunday: ‘St George’s Day has been ignored in London for too long but I’m truly pleased to announce some fantastic events to mark this occasion...
‘St George’s Day is a time to celebrate the very best of everything English and the Cross of St George will proudly fly outside City Hall on April 23. I look forward to hopping on a Routemaster and encouraging everyone to join in the fun and celebrate England’s great patron saint.’
Now I hate to break up the party boys, but if anyone has ignored St. Georges day then it's Boris himself, who despite loving his country so much, has somehow managed to miss this event:
And, er, this event:
But then maybe things were different over in Henley.
-Update- The BBC didn't do themselves any favours either, claiming that St George's Day celebrations were not funded by the last Mayor:
Mind you, if you think that's bad, take a listen to yesterday's Vanessa Feltz Show.
I switched off once she started singing Jerusalem and blessing Boris. Unbelievable.
