I thought that picture was familiar... it's the man from the Hastings Direct insurance ads!

Might also be worth pointing out to the heroic crusader that under BNP policies, St George would be removed from the UK.

Was it "Take A Special Needs Adult To Work Day" at City Hall, by any chance?

I rode past Trafalger Square today, they could've taken the scoffoling on the fountains down, it looked like a builders yard.

I saw the Pearly King and Princess of St Pancras with their pearly taxi at Leadenhall Market, knees up muvva Braaaahn, etc. I certainly wouldn't call the very sparse selection of food and drink stalls a "festival" - the "London" beer on offer was Young's which is now brewed in Bedford after Young's sold the Ram Brewery in Wandsworth for redevelopment.

What a small sword you have, Mr Dick!

It looks like even the faithful were disappointed.

Was there any publicity for the Trafalgar Square event? I was in the Regent St/Oxford St/Soho area on Monday and different parts of the City on Thursday and Saturday and I saw no posters or leaflets for this event anywhere, nothing in the Tube stations (St George's Day events under Livingstone had flyers and posters at Tube stations and tourist sites) - I was especially keeping an eye out, too.

I deliberately walked through Trafalgar Square on Thursday and there was no indication whatsoever that a concert would be taking place on Saturday.

Ooo, my first posted comment on Conservative home. Nobody's biting, maybe I've confused them...

AdamB said...

They are easily confused.

Wasn't St George a Turkish christian who lived in Palestine? Very clear link with England!
