The Cross of St George Is Advertising
I am a member of a voluntary group that aims to improve our Town Square, you know flowers,planters,street entertainment- all the stuff that Councils get paid to do but don't.
We want to put up a flag pole by November 11th for the British Legion to use. Net result requests for Elf & Safety surveys, ground surveys,annual maintenance agreements, structural engineers certificates on an annual basis.
Despite doing all of this 'we' will not be allowed to fly anything other that the Union Flag, because any other flag. the Cross of St George,the Town Coat of Arms, the town flags of our twin towns, the Wessex Flag are all deemed 'advertising'. So we have to apply for planning permission to fly 'advertising' in our own town !
Does this apply to the Dragon and Saltire in Wales and Scotland ? I bet not- only in true blue Tory controlled English Shires.
Cameron does not want an English Parliament, Cameron does not want Devolution to the Shires, Cameron is an old fashioned High Tory Authoritarian whose personal destiny is to 'Leader of Great Britain'
