Some while back I posted to the effect that the landlord of my pals local had been advised not to fly the St. Georges Flag, the advice given by police and local authorities.
Certain dopers suggested that this was an urban myth…not so!!
Our housing minister, Yvette Cooper, has pointed out that it is ILLEGAL to fly the flag from windows or at any angle without first obtaining permission from the local authorities., this under a 1992 government act.
Penalty for ignoring this law could result in a fine of £2500.
M/s Cooper intends to have this law changed and would be shocked if any council enforced it as it stands.
You really would think that our illustrious leaders had more urgent matters to tackle than to spend time faffing about with trivialities.
The mind boggles.
