On St George's Day, as many of us pondered the essence of Englishness, some woke with hangovers. One was recovering after being bandaged (if not plastered) in Casualty . . .
The six Morris dancers and two musicians who revived jester Will Kemp's 1600 jig from London to Norwich prove that we English have an energetic and creative affection for our heritage.
Less a reprise of the original marathon than a tribute in the form of a rhythmic relay, the merry dance helped lift us into the new millennium.
