Nanny Bans George

Nanny Bans George
Poor old Saint George, I don't know what he has done to Nanny but she certainly doesn't like him.

Nanny's chums in the rapidly declining and decaying Church of England are considering banning him, on the grounds that his image is too warlike and may offend Muslims.

Some of Nanny's clergy have started a campaign to replace George with St Alban, a Christian martyr in Roman Britain.

How very inspiring!

Anyone ever heard of Alban?

The proposal has been put forward by the Rev Philip Chester, vicar of St Matthew's, Westminster, he is under the impression that the use of St George as patron saint is 'dotty'.

If St Alban replaced St George, the red cross on a white background would have to be replaced as England's flag by Alban's symbol, a diagonal yellow cross on a blue background.

Hang on a minute, isn't that Scotland's flag?

What a waste of time and energy. Hardly surprising that the Church of England is in terminal decline.

  2. Sod England, it's beginning to suck more and more every day. They stick their noses in kid's lunchboxes, refuse to pay lecturers, hold double effing standards for everything...

    How's Australia these years? Do they still stand by the motive of 'you come here, you obey Ozzie rules, we ain't makin' exceptions for you scum!!'?

  3. Alice, I wouldn't move back to Australia under almost any but the most dire circumstances (I hold dual nationality). The Nanny State in Australia makes this bunch look like amateurs.

    Mind you, many people actually like stinking hot weather, and will put with more government crap for it - I hate hot weather, this week is going to be a nightmare.

    I hear New Zealand under Helen Clark is also a Nanny State of note. Seems we aren't the only ones supervised to within an inch of our lives.

  5. My advice is -- ignore them. Life's too short. Who gives a sh*t anyway?

    The Rev. Chester has violated that most sacred of commandments, "Thou shalt not make of thyself a silly, prancing tit before thy Lord."

    ps: I understand there's a bolt of lightning with his name on it.

  7. I wrote to the Bishop of St Albans, Herts to say that I would not support such a change. However when the Mohammedans removed every crescent from every mosque in the country there might be adiscussion.
    The reply said in effect that the media would make a story out of anything.
    But why should anyone even remotely think of more bowing to foreigners of a different culture and religion? Time to call a halt.

  8. Oh christ. Where on this Earth is safe? Preferably a place that speaks English, as I just couldn't get my head round GCSE French in 2003, let alone having to speak it daily...*cries*

    I think you'll find the Scottish flag is a white cross on a blue background, but close anyway.
