    just because you want it to be true doesn't make it so.

    Just because the police came out and said it didn't happen doesn't make it so either.

    I feel this is a sensible option, 4 days off a year for all 4 saints and we can get rid of a few redundant bank holidays like the end of may (not may day though, thats a good one) to balance it all out!

    Nothing says "Proud to be English" more than a Greek who killed a crocodile.

    If we are going to celebrate this great nation of ours wouldn't it make sense to associate someone who was English? Or at least stretch it to someone that maybe visited once :confused:

    feel free to find me one court case, arrest or ticket where the crime is "displaying an English flag".

    why are you associating his nationality or his physical presence on ENgland? i assume you are laughing at christians or muslims or whoever because they worship some dude up on heavens who surely have never visited this planet?

    Its all about symbolism's. And tradition, whether you like it or not most European culture and tradition is medieval or older, live with it and accept it, its not bad anyway.

    Patriotism isn't banned, it's ruined by people like this:

    What the guy said earlier in the thread wouldn't get you a court case, arrest or ticket. He was just told to take the flag down.

    It's the Royal Pavilion of Brighton, surprised how few people know this.

    The facebook screen cap is from the MFE lot who are just looking for something to justify their Muslim takeover garbage.

    what he posted was a cut down version of an old story involving a mr ben smith, and in the original they threatened him with a fine etc.

    also if there's no court, arrest or ticket for the "offense" then you can happily ignore the police believe it or not they can't just tell you to do stuff there has to actually be a law you're breaking.

    if you ever get told "take your st George flag down or we fine you" definitely stand up to it you'll get a nice wedge for the interview from the papers.

    Cannot remember when all this anti-flag thing was, it was mainly in the northwest Manchester region i believe. 07/08 if memory serves? not done any research into the matter.

    Just remember councils warning public to be considerate to others when demonstrating acts of patriotism. Police took this far too literally and started asking people to remove/take down flags. It was a one day mistake :D
