Not (flag)Waving But Drowning

Anyone else notice how as soon as England were so soundly knocked out of the World Cup all those boring articles about the flag of St George being reclaimed from the BNP stopped appearing in the broadsheet newspapers? In times like these of course, it does not help the cause of little Englander flag waving that the flag of St George is a crusader cross and therefore like a red rag to a bull to anyone from the Middle East.

Within a week of the English Soccer team dropping out of that tournament all the flags disappeared and we returned to our natural state of being embarrassed by any outward signs of patriotism; prefering to leave that sort of thing to the non cricket playing lesser breeds such as the Americans, the Scottish and er the BNP.

End Of Empire
