Bristol City Council allowed the national day to pass without a single event for the patron saint, despite its history dating back to 1222.
Council chiefs said 91 different languages are spoken in the town and it would be “very difficult to commemorate them all”.
Huh? Celebrate one, English, and celebrate St. George. The legend of St George is the story of England’s patron saint, a knight who killed a dragon that was terrorizing a village. It is one of the country’s most beloved folk tales.
You mean the newcomers don’t fit in and approve of the existing culture, and the natives aren’t proud enough of their culture to celebrate it? Guess that means it’s going to crumble and disappear.
The end of the Western Roman Empire happened gradually, with payoffs to barbarians and hiring barbarians as soldiers, barbarians increasingly living inside the Empire, and moral decay and sexual license. Still, that’s progress for you.
