Unless you have a first in PPE from Oxford, you will probably not understand this.

Each year on 23rd April, it seems that I am obliged, in the face of continued diarrhoea in the media, to make clear the following carefully argued and philosophical points.

St George’s Day – fuck off.
Proud to be English – fuck off.
Isn’t it time we had an English national anthem – fuck off.
Our national heritage – fuck off.
Our country’s better than your country – fuck off.
Our country’s dad is better than your country’s dad – fuck off.


A friend has pointed out that PPE is not available at Cambridge. So I changed the title. I am grateful for corrections.

How do you feel about Shakespeare though?

Richard said...

It used to be the day my car insurance got renewed.

It is World Book Night though. That should chear you up.

Vicus Scurra said...

Shakespeare was from Laos.
What does World Book Night mean? What is a World Book? Pls not to confuse the natives.

Richard said...

I wrote chear. Come on.

Vicus Scurra said...

Do you think I am in the habit of highlighting every little mistake?

According to Google, 23rd April is also the anniversary of the ZX Spectrum or something. I don't care about that either.

Vicus Scurra said...

Thank you Mark, I felt obliged to visit Wikipedia after that.
I see that it is also the anniversary of the death of King Aethelred.
This is also of no interest.

WTF is a PPE anyway?

Vicus Scurra said...

Hello Tom, what does "WTF" mean?

Zig said...

I once posted a 1st class letter in Cambridge, does this count ?

Vicus Scurra said...

Well, Zig, it counts among those things that I don't much care about. Will that do?

Christopher said...

Vicus, I have fucked off. What should I do now?

Vicus Scurra said...

Christopher. Come right back. We love you.

Z said...

Diarrhoea in the face is just horrible, darling.

I had no idea that Christopher used words like fucked and I'm a bit shocked, yet strangely reassured at the same time.

Vicus Scurra said...

Z. I sense more than reassurance, I sense arousal. You naughty girl.

Rol said...

I didn't understand the title, but I coped with the post... especially the fuck off bits.

Z said...

Oh Vicus, no one has called me a girl, let along naughty in the same breath, for many years. I'm strangely flattered (or possibly aroused, who's to tell?).

Vicus Scurra said...

Rol. Well done! At this rate of progess you will soon be on a par with the rest of the commentators here.
Z. I can see you blushing from here.
