Conservative MPs feel threatened by the BBC because it's entertaining, factual and has a hart, all alien concepts to the Cons.

But this flag thing is going mental.

Waving the flag worked so well during Brexit, I guess they're still doing it. What gets me is these flag wavers then bash British companies (BBC) that do our economy no end of good and then brag about their Aldi bargains. Buy British rather than wave the flag.

The Union flag will soon be committed to history and we will go back to the flag of St George once Scotland Wales and Ireland become independent countries.
After that I have no idea what they will use once the northern cities demand their own independence and London is left like Rome with the M25 as its walls and the Home counties as its buffer zone against incursion.
The British Empire has crumbled long since and I suspect that in less than 60 years we will be a collection of cities and regions inside the EU.

The thing is we're made to feel ashamed of our National flag but other countries wave theirs at every opportunity. (Flags that is!)

I have to say the Union Jack is the best looking flag of them all, it really is. Although I may be bias. Most other flags look like the country has been lumbered with them, yet ours has burst of colour displayed in a more distinct manner. But then we are a country know for Arts and innovation.

The thing is, I don't want to be forced to have one hanging in my front room to prove my loyalty.
The Germans tried that a few years back.

That's the issue, those grubby St George flags hanging from the bedroom window of a council flat have given flag flying a different connotation in this country. The Union Jack is far more colourful and it hides the dirt better, done with a well built flag poll and a small cannon, much classier.

Who makes you feel ashamed? Give actual examples of this happening.
