Happy Chinese New Year - again

Liberal Legend wishes us all a Happy Chinese New Year.

To those of us who were lucky enough to grow up during the Golden Age of Blue Peter, the Chinese New Year will always mean Val, John and Peter introducing the dancing dragon.

The only problem is: I swear that the dragon came on more than once a year. I have a dark suspicion that if Biddy Baxter found herself short of an item she decided to pretend that it was the Chinese New Year again.

In those less multicultural days, there were few viewers who would have known any better, and the dragon did make good television.

That's a very UK centric posting on Chinese New Year. I think you'll find that for a large number of the world's population it means a whole lot more than a Blue Peter episode.

Isn't the blog called "Liberal England"?

That just shows your limited viewpoint. It is annoying when people can't think beyond the Channel Islands.
