Slowly But Surely, The English Awake

The Womble's heart was gladdened to see so many St George's flags flying today. It seems that the English are finally waking up to the fact that they have a nationality of their own.

The pubs seemed to be keenest of all to fly the colours, doubtless driven in part by the need to generate a celebratory sentimement in these dark socialist days. One village in particular on the outskirts of Bradford made an especially decent effort, and it was good to see plenty of people joining in and celebrating the day. The Womble stopped on his way home to take some photos.

Let's enjoy such images while we can: before the pubs go bust and the flags get banned.

I've noticed more fervour down here too, Womble.

Even the Beeb carried an evocative pic of a man carrying a flag today too. I don't remember anything like that 12 months ago.
