CONGRATULATIONS to Dr John Sentamu when he said: "Let us not forgo our appreciation of an English identity for fear of upset or offence to those who claim such an identity has no place in a multi-cultural society."

The Archbishop of York has given voice to the feelings of the thousands of Englishmen and women who have wanted to say the same but have been prevented from doing so in case they were considered bigots.

At long last, there is an emerging confidence among all those who are proud of England that we may speak of England, her achievements, compassion and history without the threat of being branded bigots in our own land. This is illustrated by Cambridgeshire County Council's calls for ideas on how to celebrate St George's Day.

Fly the English flag for St George and England on St George's Day and every day, for we are a nation every day not just on Bank Holidays.
