Yup. Looks distinctly like he was refusing to wear the hard hat which is legally required in many circumstances and is a condition of insurance in many others.

I'd have offered the cunt overtime.

To be fair, it was probably to make up for the fact that Norwegians habitually refer to everyone from Britain as English. I've given up explaining the difference and just why I prefer to refer to myself as British and just embraced it now.
Just call em Swedes - they love that.

My dad (who, I should point out, was taking the piss) spent a moment challenging me to guess what day it was last Wednesday. I honestly completely bloody forgot about St George and guessed Shakespeare's birthday.

We really should make more of a deal of that nationally, it's got a far better connection to England and English heritage and a lot more to actually base a celebration around.

True, but the 23rd is generally used as such.

The men came in dressed the same, they were asked if they were members and they got abusive.
‘They shouted a lot, walked out, bashed on the windows.

Shakespeare's actual birthday is not known.

But his deathday is known, unfortunately it was on 23rd April. I hope his friends and family had kept the receipts for the birthday presents.

Council bans Indian food stall from St George's Day event because it 'only wanted English food'

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... s-Day.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Stall-owner Tania Rahman, 27, was invited to take part in the celebrations
But then Salisbury Council told her food wasn't English enough for event
She called move 'discriminatory' and said St George was born in Palestine
And locals were also left furious forcing council to do embarasing U-turn
Oh dear.

Seems to be some support for this PC gone mad at the council

A poorly worded response but if I was going to a St George ' s Day event, I would want to see traditional hog roast, pie and mash and maybe fish and chips. I wouldn't expect a curry stall to be there and I love curries. It's just not the theme of the event.

I love curry, but at a St George's day event? Curry is very popular and is definitely now a very British dish, it is not English. Curry does not suit the occasion.
