Flag Flying Consultation

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport is holding “consultation” on whether the British flag should be flown from English public buildings all year round.

Regardless of the results, the English flag will be supressed in favour of the British flag because that’s what suits the racist British government but it’s still worth putting in your views, if only to get it off your chest.

    I do wonder sometimes if the reason they have consultations is to find out how pissed off people are getting. There’s never any real consultation going on, is there? Manufacturing consent, is all.

    Done – doubt it will do any good but it’s done.

    We live in Britain, we are therefore by definition Brits. I am a Brit first and foremost, and so i thin that the British flag should be flown highest, higher than St Gerorge in England, and higher than the Saltire/St Andrews/whatever people want to call the scottish flag.

    “The rule, issued by the Department for Media, Culture and Sport, says: “Where a building has two or more flagstaffs the appropriate National flag may be flown in addition to the Union Flag, but not in a superior position.”


    So according to that an English flag is no problem and could be flown alongside the uj at no10.

    Being a Welshman… stuff the Union Flag, I say. It has no representation for Wales on it.. its an amalgamation of the crosses of St George, St Andrew & St Patrick… England, Scotland & Ireland. Before you say that Wales is a principality, do remember that it became a principality after it was conquered by the English, and had an english prince of Wales imposed on it. Charles is the last in a long line of such imposed foreign princes. Gordon Brown is only interested in forcing ‘Britishness’ down our throats because he wants to be re-elected at PM, being a Scot who is not particularly popular in England (or in Scotland for that matter).

    The Union Flag is a foreign flag as far as I’m concered, and you wags over the border are welcome to it, with all its imperialistic history and all the evil things perpetrated all over the world under its ambit. My allegiance is to Wales, the Welsh flag, & the Welsh people!
