    Why do some get all excited about another country's patron saint?

    A thread about St Patrick's Day on an England forum. God, the irony.

    I hope we thrash the Irish this weekend, as I do with any sport, any country.

    No wonder we are walked over as a nation.

    I'll apologise on a personal level, be proud of you heritage.

    You haven't offended me at all, I'm just sick of the annual "Let's be Irish for a day, wear green and LOOOVVE Guinness for a day, hey my great great grandad had an Irish Setter once, whoah, it is their country after all" brigade.
    Some tw@t at work said to me yesterday, "I'm off tomorrow for my yearly Guinness fill."
    I asked why, you are English and pubs sell Guinness all year round.

    But hey, I'm sure the Irish, Scottish and Welsh will be falling over each other to post on here April 23rd.

    Id rather watch Leeds or Sheff Wensday or Sheff United, than support St Patrick's (Ireland) or St David's (Wales) or St Andrew's (Scotland) day.
    They couldnt care less about us and our own St George's day, so why should I/we care about theirs ?

    Who's walking over us now ? It is usually us who do the walking over which is why we are having invaded 180 out of 200 nations in the world are top of the United Nations World Aggressors League.

    Redbasie, it wasn't meant in a political/power happy manner.
    It was more to do with in a public manner, a suggestion that as a nation we tend to roll over and go with it, St. Patrick's Day being an example. I could go on about St. Georges Day being seen as offensive so we, as a whole, back down in fear, etc, blah, blah, but I won't.

    Regarding the invasion of so many nations, surely the vast majority are in the distant past? If we invade these days it tends to be at the request of the USA.

    Maybe another example of being walked over as a nation.

    There are still some that are not in the distant past - Argentina, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya. Foreign corresponents used to tease Kate Adey about her work load . I dont think St George's Day as being offensive providing it is not like a Nazi rally preaching hate and superiority. In fact the more carnivals we have the better.
