    Look here, this Saint George bloke, he isn't English. He never lived in England. He never even did a stag weekend in Blackpool. Why is he our patron saint? I'm not happy about this. I think we should have a local saint for local people.

    Where is Simon Cowell when you need him? I think we need to have a Saint Idol, or The Cross Factor ( variation on the X Factor, geddit??)

    We could look at their resumes and have a public vote. We needn't confine it to Christian saints, we can seize this opportunity to include our Pagan and Satanic colleagues as well as other mainstream religions like Premier Leaguists.

    If anyone would like to nominate a suitable contender to patronise us????

    I think we can even include living contenders. Why confine it to dead saints? Personally I like that Scottish Rabbi on thought for the day, Roy Keane would be good too. Obviously I am only thinking out loud here.....(anyone but Princess Di...)

    Interesting idea Cullen…..I've never liked the idea of a johnny foreigner being our patron saint….especially one we have to share with the likes of Ethiopia, Greece, Portugal and Russia….Russia, people RUSSIA!! :ohmy: But can I ask, are you limiting the contenders to having actually existed?

    I quite like the idea of Frank Spencer being our saint or, at the other end of the scale, Malcolm Tucker

    Good point!

    We need to establish the correct criteria. I definitely insist on Englishness.

    Religion, actual existence,living or dead, morality, sexual preference, politics, favourite music genre, looking like a fish or smelling like one etc are all immaterial.

    We need to ask ourselves who best represents us as a nation on the global platform? Frank Spencer ticks all my boxes. I've never heard of the other one.

    Alternatively, my neighbour, Cockney Steve, he lives next door but one, he would be good too. A bit Alf Garnet on occasion but a thoroughly good bloke. He always used to give number 1 and 2 sons a bashing if he thought they were up to no good, which in general they weren't.

    Malcolm Tucker, who I can't believe you've not heard of - he's the extremely sweary PR guy on the excellent "The Thick Of IT" :thumbup1: - is actually Scotish :wink: so it looks like he's out according to your criteria....

    Not sure I could vote for someone who looks like a fish though :thumbdown:

    Yes he is!! The pope stagging, God-believing, fish face that he is!

    He's no saint! :mad2:
  • CullenCullen Experienced Mentor Registered Posts: 592
    So it's between Cockney Steve, Harry Enfield and Frank Spencer?

    Iv'e ruled out the Gallaghers, too Irish, Bruce Forsyth as too Scottish, London Natt as too fishish. Who is Karl Pilkington?

    How dare you!

    He's got a head like a ****ing orange!!!!!!! :huh:
  • CullenCullen Experienced Mentor Registered Posts: 592
    Oh heck, I've offended you there, Paul. Sorry about that. I googled and all I can make out is that he is a mate of Ricky Gervais? However if you think he is worthy of Patronisation and is English, I'll add him to the list. Fair enuffski?

    lol you certainly could have. Well maybe that was an exaggeration, but he is funniness personified

    Mmmm - You need to get out more Paul24

    How about Derek Trotter - aka "Delboy" - A legend in his own bathtime

    Or Winnie the Pooh - Is he Engish? He must be by default because A A Milne is English - Born uin London

    He won't allow just anyone into his ring you know.

    How about Chris Moyles, being fat, unfunny, oafish and bigoted he'd be a perfect representation of what it is to be English.
  • CullenCullen Experienced Mentor Registered Posts: 592
    I think it was "ringing" that caused a lot of trouble for him.
  • CullenCullen Experienced Mentor Registered Posts: 592
    Never Chris Moyles, or even Morissey. All Irish I tell you. It's the Irish Murphia.
  • CJCCJC Font Of All Knowledge Registered Posts: 1,657
    Actually, it does my heart good to know that I am not of the same nationality as Chris Moyles even though he does exhibit so much of our national character.
