4OO years and more of flag waving


"The Union Jack to me represents the repression of the Scots by the English..."

How sad that you feel inclined to this petty sub-nationalism. While historically you may be correct isn't time we all got on together a bit better? I live in England but when I travel to Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland I don't feel like I'm in another country - can't we all be proud to be Britons?
So it's better to be a British nationalist than a 'sub' scottish nationalist? To follow on logically from there, it should be even better to fly the EU flag-surely British nationalism is merely a 'sub-nationalism'. Can't we all be proud to be Europeans?

The Union Flag? Why don't you ask the Lost Generation from the 1914-18 war what it meant to be sent by inbred gentry to meaningless slaughter under it?
Couldn't really put it any better than that.
