Sue Baker's view...

To those of us ground down by political misdeeds, banking corruption, the collapsing NHS, increasing poverty and a host of other woes, it’s surprising that Richard Happer could find 5 reasons to be proud to be English. But – by delving into history he’s found enough deeds, heroic acts and brilliant scientists, inventors, sportsmen and women to provide his 365 or one a day reason to be proud to be English.
