The Swaffham Crier Online

The English, The English, The English are the best

Donald Swann was born in 1923 in Llanelli in Wales. Here he must have acquired a detailed knowledge of the Welshman which he must have passed on to Michael Flanders who wrote a devastating description which will not be reproduced in the Crier -unless there is a popular demand.

Instead you shall have the verse on foreigners.

"And crossing the channel one cannot say much

For the French or the Spanish. the Danish or Dutch

The Germans are German, the Russians are red

And the Greeks and Italians eat garlic in bed.

They conclude

The English are noble, the English are nice

And worth any other at double the price"
