- For all the inevitable talk about 'reclaiming' St George's day and the flag from fascists, it has never been a major fascist symbol. When someone claims otherwise they are articulating an unconcious prejudice that any patriotic display is racist.

- Shakespeare was born and died on St George's day, which makes his prolific output all the more impressive if he only lived for one day.
