St George’s Day

Google UK is again celebrating Saint George’s Day with a doodle (CLICK). Very patriotic. How about paying your fair share of UK corporation tax to show just how supportive of England you really are? And why not campaign for England to have a holiday in honour of our patron saint? We're the only country in the UK that doesn't have a holiday for its patron saint. Above is Paolo Uccello's St George and the Dragon (1458-60) in the Musée Jacquemart-André, Paris. My favourite Uccello dragon, complete with RAF roundels, is in London's National Gallery (CLICK). Moans aside, have a very happy Saint George's Day.
