This looks great and I am not knocking it at all, but one can't help but wonder what a celebration day of British culture would comprise of? Whatever 'Britishness' was ,we as a nation have become so diluted by a huge influx of immigrants since WWII that we have lost that easy to reel off list that defined us as British...any good ideas?
