Round one - mine's a pint.

BBC NEWS | England | Norfolk | Landlord battling for St George

A patriotic pub landlord has won one round in his fight to raise the profile of St George's Day.

Tony Bennett, 47, of the Otter pub in Drayton, Norfolk, has permission to open for an extra hour on 23 April.

But Norwich magistrates agreed because the pub would raise money for charity - not because they recognised the day as special in the eyes of the law....


As has been said by many more eloquent commentators than I:
It is a rum do when St Paddy's is considered an occassion fit for longer hours yet St George's is not.
On t'other hand, why not bin off the ridiculous licensing laws altogether?
