Happy St George's Day

Dennis Hwang - St George's Day and Shakespeare's Birthday (2009)Google UK is celebrating St George's Day and Shakespeare's birthday. Look closely. Dennis Hwang has managed to combine the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet with St George, who is on bended knee offering the dragon on the balcony a nosegay. (Yes, Romeo, that is what your teenage sweetheart would probably have become, if tragedy hadn't struck.) When will the English gain a holiday to celebrate our patron saint? Not so long as that dour Scot Gordon Brown remains prime minister. But will David Cameron give us our holiday? Make it an election pledge, David, or get on your bike. Over one million people have already voted for St George's Day to become a national holiday (CLICK to vote).
