    They certainly do, I read today that cowboy outfits are to be banned from some fancy dress parties in deference to the North American Indians.

    In reality of course, the cowboys didn't have much to do with it, their job was herding cattle, it was the army & the settlers that put paid to the poor Indians.
    Britons were wild camping long before campsites, it's a basic human right.

    I take umbrage at you refering to native Americans as Indians.

    Well, St George's Day might be considered one such day. George, a Turk, first came to prominence during the Crusades, when his spirit was invoked against the Muslims. Admitedly, he didn't become our patron saint until he was credited with us winning the Battle of Crecy but you could say that celebrating George is a defeat for both Muslims and the French

    They are at it again .. They did start at a respectable time this morning 9am .. Perhaps itís the Spanish pushing the German MHís back into the sea .... Will walk down later and assess the damage ..

    I think there are quite a few re-enactments of historical battles within the UK from the past, including between Scots and English in the various Border Wars and I don't think the 'thought police' make anything of it.
    keep it to our selves, oh i that is me am not, but i am brit tish and native.pj
