So Norm does not like George because he was a Palestinian ? In the calendar of the Eastern Church his Feast Day is on 8th May and I shall continue to celebrate his life on that day !

Britannia did not refer to what Norm thinks of as "The British Isles" Not to Cal;edonia and certainly not to Hibernia !
