St. Ken's Day

It's not just St Patrick's Day, we celebrated Russian New Year in January, Chinese New Year and this year, for the first time, we will celebrate the Muslim festival of Eid in Trafalgar Square - London mayor Ken Livingstone.

Ken celebrates every day except St. George's day which is uniquely hijacked as "an anti-racism event [] held in Trafalgar Square" rather than a celebration.

I haven't even received a reply to my email yet from 'Ken' or his brown nosers as to why St George isn't celebrated for what it is - a day of National celebration.......

Still, I reckon they've been busy with celebrating St Paddy (a man of Cumbria) - and I only sent it 2 weeks ago.... hey ho.

Alfie, I assume he was more concerned about being suspended for four weeks. Personally, I'd have been happy to be suspended for four weeks on full pay and would have gone on holiday to Australia and enjoyed the sunshine!

I'm intrigued as to whether celebrations of the Muslim festival of Eid will be hijacked as an anti-terror event in London!
