Years ago when I was still training as a teacher, we held a Commonwealth Games day at the school I was training in for that year. It’s like the Olympic Games, but just played amongst the Commonwealth countries. Which means Europe and the USA aren’t invited, and England has to compete as itself without the help of the Scots, Welsh and the Irish, and therefore get flogged in the medal count by Australia. Anyway, we split the kids into groups to represent Commonwealth countries for the day. Dress up in their colours, etc. I overheard one mum’s sigh of disappointment when her son ran up to tell her he was English!
Anyway, just a little bit of friendly fun poked at anyone who’s a Brit here. At least I know I’ll win you back with the poke at the French, eh?
