I understand people see it associated with Right wing groups, the BNP et al. But there's no reason why everyone can't appreciate it. Afterall, it is a day "for England" rather than "for the English".
If people went out they would. People don't go out for St. George's day because there's not engouh cheap drink deals and promotions. The Breweries don't push it in the same way Guiness does for Paddys day.
Add that to the fact that barely anyone even knows when it is due to the lack of promotion the only ones bothered about it are hardcore nationalists and BNP nutters so the majority of people out are therefore skin head wankers singing about how they hate pakis it's no wonder people don't bother.
