Nail on the head! Also, people enjoy the St Patricks day, Caribbean carnivals and pride parades because they are inclusive and fun to join in. St George's day smacks of BNP for many. It was basically the wholesale adoption of a Paddy's Day style celebration, a kind of international keeping up with the Joneses. To be honest, I only knew it was on because I heard it coming past my door and seeing adults dressed as Tudors (but still smoking fags) and a horse and cart that looked like a funeral procession was perhaps the most un-English thing that we could do! Then again, I don't really see the point of nationalism anyway. Why be proud of the country you were born in? Be proud of your own actions and choices!
