There are two exceptional and good things about England

in contrast to the innumerable bad ones.

1. The British Broadcasting Corporation.

2. There is no National Holiday
(depite the upstart national saint's day coinciding with Shakespeare's birthday).




Note for those few who are interested in such things:

England's patron saint was originally Edmund, King and Martyr...
nearly all of whose relics were taken from Bury St Edmund's to Toulouse in 1217, during the Anglo-Norman & Northern French land-grab and genocide in Occitania (SW France) known as the Albigensian Crusade.

St George (the personal patron and intercessor of the rascal Richard I) was introduced as England's national saint at the same time, 
but St Edmund didn't disappear from English awareness until the 14th century.
