- Is this guy for real? (Cameron content)
and when they are out he will no doubt fly the European Union flag and then support one of them ?…
I have put it in words he will understand
I am looking at all the benches here and I am sure that everyone in this House, no matter what part of the United Kingdom they come from, will be cheering 'come on
First Thatcher then this 😯Posted 7 years ago
I don't think this matters in the slightest, so I refuse to get het up about it.
To the (utterly non-existent) extent that it might matter, I'd have thought that taking the view that the British government was going to show semi-official support for the only one of the nations of the union still competing in any given event was hardly insane, racist or insensitive to the dead of Culloden. I suspect that (if asked) Cameron would cheerfully say that he'd like Andy Murray to win the Grand Prix as well. 🙂Posted 7 years ago
why the hell not? England is part of the UK. Quite frankly find the scottish "I wont cheer for England" attitude a bit childish, I'd cheer for Scotland if they got in and England didn't, same with Wales – they're part of the UK. Small mindedness all this divisiveness, it's a fun sporting event and one of the countries in our union is in the battle – lets cheer them on.Posted 7 years ago
Would the little englander Cameron really fly the saltire?
I honestly think he might actually. It's just a cheap stunt. Overall returns would be lower from the same stunt (i.e. flying the Saltire) if Scotland were playing, but there would still be some benefit to be had.Posted 7 years agonachoMember
Why are so many people so anal about the George Cross? I'm not a particularly big footie fan (although I will be supporting England) and certainly not right wing.Posted 7 years ago
It's our national flag and why is it wrong if people are happy to display it. When I lived in London (now in Devon) at the last world cup loads of different nationalities were displaying their flags on cards etc and I thought it looked great. Maybe more non right wing non football fans should fly it then it would lose it's current perception….
We know the opressors do not hate the oppressed and cant understand why we get "uppity" about this. Would the little englander Cameron really fly the saltire? I think not
Can't imagine why not. But we have our own parliament to do it don't we, so the point is moot? You're moaning about the UK parliament, based in England, with the majority of its powers over England, hoisting the England flag? WTF?Posted 7 years ago
If it were the England football team flag, then it would be absolutely fine. But it's not, it's the England flag, and flying it at the centre of power of a country whose minority constituents already feel marginalised (and didn't vote for the occupant) is highly insensitive I feel. CmD may think it should be perfectly ok to do this but he MUST surely realise that a lot of other folk won't agree… Sensitive leader FAIL.Posted 7 years ago

Why not? England is playing in World Cup is it not?
As the english prime minister I don't have a problem, but as the Brtish PM expecting Wales and Scotland to support england, I do.
I am, however, particularly grateful he has dipped into his own personal fortune to pay for this little publicity stunt rather than burden the British taxpayer.

And this is a problem why exactly?

It's going to bring the house prices right down in Downing Street.
Actually, I was surmising the other day while driving around….
Four years ago, there were a few England flags draped outside houses in my street. So far, there are none. Is that an indicator that my street is finally (about f***ing time) is "up and coming"? 😀Posted 7 years ago
It's more can't understand it than can't take – I figure that English fans aren't really that fussed about it as such since typically they're doing better than Scotland/Wales/NI so it's not exactly a touchy subject.
I guess it'd be a bit like if someone walked up to you in the street and just started insulting you because you've got brown hair.Posted 7 years ago

Jesus christ on a bike. I really can't go anywhere from this point, it strikes me as incredibly pathetic that anyone would care that much.Posted 7 years agotrailmonkeyMember

Oh stop dripping FFS, seems like a large portion of those constituents would happily be marginalised on a permanent basis and will doubtless, to a man, prove their self marginalisation by supporting England's opponents in every game.
And as for all that nonsense about the oppressed and the oppressors, I doubt for one second that anyone really thinks that Westminster has any more regard for its English subjects than it does the Scottish or the Welsh, but if they do, then I suggest that they spend some time reading up on the Peterloo massacre or the Tolpuddle martyrs or the 80's miners strike.
Then again I'd hate for reality to get in the way of any thinly veiled Anglo bashing.Posted 7 years ago
And the two posts from Repack sum it up nicely, Because you can't understand how the other nations feel, clearly there is no point trying, and you might aswell just mock and belittle those who have an opinion which is different from yours.
I support Britain when there is a team Britain, but I will never support england so please don't ask me to.
If it is so unimportant to you, why are you posting??Posted 7 years ago
