The Scottish government spent £30,000 celebrating their national saints day.
Guess how much Alistair Darling allocated for St George's Day in the whole of England?
General discussion, News and Announcements, etc. from Driffield
Why should the Government pay anything? If I want to celibrate St Georges Day I buy a St Georges flag and have a do thats up to me, not the government. It should be a public holiday. If local councils or other public building wish to display a St Georges Flag again thats up to them. Not the Government. St Georges day should be apolitical. Can you immagine the comments if they had spent £1,000,000 on St Georges Day . What a waste of dosh £ 114 to much if you ask me and the money spent by Scotland was that to promote the day or clean up the vomit afterwards? For God , Lizzie and St George!! ta-rah!!
