Debate Replay: Is St George’s Pride Lost?
St George’s Day is here again but compared with St Patrick’s Day there’s little evidence of celebration. We asked you – Has England lost its national pride? Are the English no longer nationalistic? After years of colonialism have Englishmen and women lost interest in their own shores? Or have the right-wing connotations of St George’s flag left people embarrassed to express love for their nation?
Marcus Stafford, director of the England Society and Tim Hopcroft from the Royal Society of St George discussed these questions in our lunchtime debate.
