Happy St George's day. Roast beef dinner tonight with all the trimmings, I would have a pint of London pride if our beer wasn't so awful - scamp can have that for me.

Paddy's day is when the world pretends to be Irish.

Most people don't even know it's St G's Day today.

it just doesn't really mean much to me . What exactly are people celebrating ?
