Jousting works as a sport with social distancing if you have a lance

I too have noticed while queueing for things, people are of a slightly more browned tinge Wink

The same Corbyn that proposed making St. George’s day a bank holiday?

George was not a knight.  He was ‘possibly’ a Roman soldier. He would not have worn a full suit of armour, they didn’t appear until the 14th c. Approximately fourteen hundred years after his death. He did not have a flag, that was another later invention and the dragon didn’t appear until a thousand years after his martyrdom.

As I proud Englishman I don’t think celebrating St George’s Day is a very English thing to do, it passes me by tbh

Hanging the Union Flag the wrong way.

Good grief.
