Note: this will be the only time I mention any World Cup here. While I will be watching it, enjoying it and hoping England go all the way I've just had enough of it being everywhere. Weeks before it began I'd already had enough of it. Not just the corporate greedies that latched on to it but the St. George's flag everywhere. Not sure if any other country is suffering this, but in England all chavs and idiots are driving round with the national flag flying outside all their car windows. It's ridiculous.
I've never really like the St. George's cross as a flag, for various reasons. Whereas the Union Jack instils a certain amount of national pride in me the cross of St. George does nothing at all. I'll be glad when it's all over and the flags go away.
