Saints Day

"We, as members of the House of Commons and House of Lords, meeting in Westminster Hall this St George's Day, Monday 23rd April 2007, hereby establish an All Party Parliamentary Group for St George's Day, the aim of which will be to promote the 23rd April as an annual celebration of England and the country's Patron Saint, St George and to campaign for St. George's Day to be established as a public holiday for all the people of England"

The inaugural meeting of St George's Day All Party Parliamentary Group took place on today at The House of Commons and The Committee was duly established with over 15 MP's attending. In addition to Andrew Rosindell who has tabled the Early Day Motion , MP's from across the House attended including David Blunkett , Peter Bottomley , Sir Nicholas Winterton and his wife Lady Ann Winterton.

It's nice to have the knowledge that at last someone is doing something to foster the sense of pride in this country of ours. I understand it was free to get into Alton Towers today if you went with a dragon (no jokes please).

Go on my son :-)
