Restoring Britain posts on a small problem in the village of Gamston, in Nottinghamshire, where the Union Jack has been flying all year round, much to the distaste of some residents, one of whom appears to have spent too many days sunbathing (and if that last comment is racist - tough!)
As far as I can recall, since 2007, it has been permissible for any individual or organisation to fly the flag of the United Kingdom on any day it wishes, although I have to ask what business is it of 'government', or even a parish council, to decide when those who have pride in a symbol of their country can exercise that right - unless of course, with my belief in true 'localism', they have consulted all in that village and the majority decision is to fly that flag every day,.
Perhaps those in the video, to which RB refers, would like to take their strongly held views about respecting diversity and air them in, say, North Korea or even Iran? When taking citizenship of this nation does the applicant not swear allegiance to the Union Jack? And if not, why not?
It is this type of 'story' - and the motives of the BBC and the way they report it - that really makes me mad! To those who don't like our national flag, who find it for some reason 'repulsive', then one can only suggest they 'Foxtrot Oscar' - their choice of destination I leave to them!
Just saying/asking (as usual)...............
