And you, good yeoman whose limbs were made in England...

.....show us here
The mettle of your pasture; let us swear
That you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;
For there is none of you so mean and base,
That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry 'God for Harry, England, and Saint George!'


Happy St Georges Day to one and all.

For one day at least let's celebrate what is good about England and the English rather than moaning about what isn't.

  • Sorry Henners but the trains are shit ;0)
  • Agreed, having a cracking day everyone!
  • Twas in the days of old
    The army was in retreat
    The old mans eyes were filled with tears
    And his boots were filled with feet
  • Is it St George's Day?
  • Is it St George's Day?

    And did those feet in ancient time
    Walk upon England's mountain green?
    And was the holy Lamb of God
    On England's pleasant pastures seen?
    And did the countenance divine
    Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
    And was Jerusalem builded here
    Among those dark satanic mills?

    Bring me my bow of burning gold!
    Bring me my arrows of desire!
    Bring me my spear! O clouds, unfold!
    Bring me my chariot of fire!
    I will not cease from mental fight,
    Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand,
    Till we have built Jerusalem
    In England's green and pleasant land.



    Have a cracking day everyone, Shame the OB still won't allow people to celebrate accordingly though.
  • Happy St. George's Day one and all!
  • Day booked off as usual. Day on the lash round London with the boys!!
  • This happy breed of men, this little world,
    This precious stone set in the silver sea,
