Wave done it: Sun flag fight

THE Union flag will proudly fly above ALL state buildings from schools to hospitals EVERY day - in a victory for The Sun.

Ancient rules barring the standard from being hoisted more than 18 times a year are to be dumped, Lord Chancellor Jack Straw announced yesterday.

C'mon George, get with the programme..

Following a revision of flag flying policy for the Scottish Government in September 2005 , the Saltire should now be flown every day.

When I last read "The Sun" back in '92 this was its front page...

Nationalistic decisions. The media wields the forceps again. So be it, if they want the Scottish flag to fly everywhere then that's their call. It's not overly controversial

All this in the defence of "tradition"......anyone else see the irony?

A big draw back for he English electorate is that Gordy Broon is Scottish.
He has to think of ways that will get all the English voters to forget he is Scottish.

Traditionally, the Scottish Vote has helped Labour secure victory in British elections. With Labour losing ground in Scotland to the SNP, Gordy Broon has to emphasize how "British" he is.

That is why we have talk of a British Day, Citizenship, Flag flying etc

If the traditionally centre left electorate in Scotland are lost through Independence, Labour in England are in big trouble, hence the lies being spread about Independence for Scotland.

These are the desperate acts of a desperate man.

I'd still like to see the Welsh dragon superimposed on the flag. How cool would that be?

You can see the country being more Nationalistic :) In 2012 school kids will have to swear oath to the Queen be them English or not :) I'm still not going to vote Labour due to the reasons of tax, petrol and the surrender to the EU. I'll be keeping a close eye on the conservatives and if they don't impress me I'll voting for a right-wing party.

You're full of insults lol. You must come to realise that your insults have no effect on me lol be it psycological or not. It's not the tories that are about to sign the EU treaty. The tories are in favour of a referendum. The tories seem a different party to what they were 10 years ago. Like I said if they don't impress me then I'll vote a right-wing party. I'm a traitor for planning to migrate to another country? Nope I just love my money. I hate being taxed to death. Would you say these Poles are traitors to their own country for seeking a better life than their native land?
