Wasn't st George Turkish

As well as being the patron St for 17 diferent country's , wasn't ST George Turkish?......and a Turkish Muslim at that and not a Christian?

Besides, Greek or Turkish he never steep foot anywhere near England this green and pleasant land :lol:
Can't we have some one who is actually uniquely English like say, Robin Hood. That's if he actually ever existed at all,but at least he's nearer to being an actual Englishman. 
What a confused lot we are:lol:

S'peare

died on his birthday.

St George supposedly was beheaded for refusing to sacrifice to the Roman Gods declaring his Christianity to be the reason for his defiance.

That might've all been made up by the church for their adoption of a muslim as opposed to their adoption of a likely Olympian-pagan.

As for Robin Hood....well King John really existed. Not sure we want him as a Saint though

Pensions

Yep, not taxed at source (because it is below the threshold) but counts towards total income when assessing your tax liability.  That isn't anything new though - it's always been that way.  Pensions are still the best way of saving to provide for retirement though.

yep, well aware of it but 14 tax codes since July last year ? ffs how can I have any faith or trust in the 'system' ? every time I call it's a different operator a different reason and to be told last January that their record showed I was still working at Culdrose for the Civil Service, I retired from there over 3 years ago ! they actually thought my Civil Service pension was a wage ! Christ I need St George to charge at them to sort the feckers out :lol::lol::lol:

I did receive an apology from them after MANY calls to them at my expense to sort out their clusterfucks, I mean, I had to provide evidence to them that I had informed them of my retirement rather than THEM investigate where THEY had fucked up ---- still smiling though cos they're in Cardiff I'm here :laugh::sunglasses:
