Gosh already another organisation has stepped up to the plate, and made itself "worthy" for my prestigious "Prats of The Week" Award.
This time it goes to Sunderland City Council, as Robert Smithson found to his cost recently.
Mr Smithson wanted to fly the Cross of St George from his house, to welcome back his twin sons from the Coldstream Guards after completing their training.
Needless to say, some member of the public complained (one wonders how some people's minds work, that they have the time and energy to complain about trivia), and Sunderland City Council wrote to Mr Smithson threatening him with a fine of up to £2,500 for illegally flying the flag from his suburban house.
Seemingly he was breaking planning laws, because the flag was at the wrong angle (thus it was classified as advertising) according to the officials from the council.
Ermmm...why not just rehang it then?
Ironically, after some investigation it transpired that council officials had misinterpreted the rules and got it wrong.
The flag can stay!
