Some English Pride

I tend to only write about politics on this blog as I think MPs who try to sound 'cool' and 'down with the kids' by sharing their views about other subjects such as sport or music tend to come off as a bit sad. I swear some MPs think they are some sort of celebrity whose ramblings on any subject at all deserve to be shared with public.
