St George Comes To London

StGeorge.jpg Cry 'God for Boris, England and Saint George!' London's getting a week of free events to mark the national saint's day, including a Shakespeare event at the Globe, a folky concert in Trafalgar Square and something to do with food and a Routemaster at Leadenhall Market. The Mayor says St George's Day has "been ignored in London for far too long" and while this may be true, we question the timing. As funding for celebrations like Pride, St Patrick's Day and the Mela get cut or 'reappraised', it's a little suspicious that suddenly there's cash for a second London-based hoopla.
