You said it, Eddie

A great piece from British comedian Eddie Izzard on why the Olympics was a triumph for England and why he's proud to be a Brit. Eddie's one of the funniest human beings on the planet, amazingly smart and highly versatile (who else can do comedy about the Church of England as well as Star Wars??)

But he can also be serious with the best of them, and this is a wonderful article.

Britain is quite a shy country (unless we've had a drink). We don't like to blow our own trumpets. We don't wear our stiff upper lips on our sleeves (which is actually quite difficult to do). But we've all found our own ways to be patriotic (as opposed to Nationalistic). I had one of my nails painted with a Union Jack, as is my right as a marathon-running transvestite who supports Team GB.
