If getting disgustingly drunk and making an arse of yourself is the correct way to "celebrate your Englishness" then the whole thing wants banning. It was every bit as bad as whenever In-ger-lund get knocked out of a major foopball competition :roll:
I spoke to someone last night who was convinced they were celebrating St George's birthday .

We celebrate St Daley's Day on April 23rd what with it being my birthday and being an inclusive and multi-culti household Mrs Mayle made a Chinese meal. I also managed to get through my birthday without drinking alcohol, probably the first time since the late 1960s.

There were a few St George cross flags in the Coopers Arms in Rochester last night, and plenty of bunting outside the Shozna Indian restaurant.

Sounds like a pleasant night out.

Sadly I was only driving past the Shozna (don't worry, I'd been on the lemonades!)

As for the atmosphere in the pub, I wasn't aware of any xenophobic posturing from anybody in there, and (apart from the dog trying to gas us) it was indeed a pleasant way to pass a couple of hours.
