    Well, when this country was run by catholics they reckoned this guy should be our saintly geezer . . . . this guy called George (an Italian), who was a soldier in Palestine (when it was run by Romans, not jews or muslims (they hadn't been invented yet - the muslims)) got slotted. He got slotted for being a papist (before popes where invented), shortly after jesus got slotted (for being a christian, except christians hadn't been invented yet then, they were still jews).

    He's actually the catholic patron saint of a whole bunch of countries and towns, and one of the most important memorial papists in christendom.

    He had his head chopped off for being one too.

    Being, oddly, a patron saint of England, he was demoted by the pope in 1963 to patron memorial dead person 3rd class for a bit, but reinstated in 2000 by a new pope.
