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.
