Quote:
It is often stated that the Union Flag should only be described as the Union Jack when flown in the bows of a warship, but this is a relatively recent idea. From early in its life the Admiralty itself frequently referred to the flag as the Union Jack, whatever its use, and in 1902 an Admiralty Circular announced that Their Lordships had decided that either name could be used officially. Such use was given Parliamentary approval in 1908 when it was stated that “the Union Jack should be regarded as the National flag”.

If people didn't want their precious flag flying the wrong way up then they should have put a bit more fucking effort into making sure it looked a bit more different when it is.

Speaking of flags, when we went to IKEA last week, they had the Swedish flag flying at half mast to mark the tragedy in Stockholm.

I was sufficiently touched to put in a glowing review on their in-store computer.

Wasn't that the point, though? So baddies wouldn't notice when you were doing it?

Surely it would also be pretty hard for the goodies to tell as well if they weren't stood right next to it. In which case you could have just told them whatever it was you were trying to signal.

I don't think the voting majority can exactly be fifth columnists, that's not really how that works

Fucking hell. Who gives a shit


I saw people genuinely putting forward "going back to a blue passport" as a real reason to vote for Brexit.

I just passed a number of people waving EU flags from the footbridge over Botley Road just now. Is there a national day of action going on, or just pre-election jitters?

In other news, I expect the bill to be reduced down to the original €60 billion (about £1 zillion at the current rate) plus ongoing subscriptions and to be hailed as a diplomatic triumph by the Tories.

Nobody watches for the British entry anyway. It's always boring as hell.

I'm not so sure. There's a pretty strong contingent of idiots across Europe who all think Brexit is great, something they'd like to do as well.

I've not watched the clip but this exchange I've read on This is Oxfordshire between Mr Farron and an angry voter kind of sums up the state of the country at the moment:

Quote:
Mr Baker said: "Do not tell people who voted leave that they didn't know what they were voting for."

In response, Mr Farron questioned the disgruntled voter about whether he was proud his grandchildren 'would inherit a poorer, less powerful, less secure country'.

"I'm proud that they will be coming out of Europe and that we will have our own destiny and not have people telling us we are going to pay £100 billion to get out," Mr Baker said.

Yeah, we didn't hear a word from Eurosceptics after they lost in '76. Now it's our turn to keep schtum.

If you're railing against the 'Establishment' by voting leave, you're going to be angry at any perceived attempt by said 'Establishment' to take away your victory. Me? I'm happy to concede if, in 10 or 20 years, life is better as a result of all this that I voted the wrong way. At present, nothing convinces me this isn't the biggest political disaster since Iraq or the Poll Tax. It may even reach the giddy heights of the Suez fiasco.
