As we all know, the World Cup kicks off today.
Even David Cameron is attempting to be seen to be bothered, and is going to fly the cross of St George flag from Downing Street.
However, within the Nanny state there lurks a group of people who fear the cross of St George and being identified as being "Engerlish".
I cite the case of Bolton At Home (a company that manages 18,000 council homes in the Manchester area), which has banned its 1,200 workers from flying England flags on their own cars.
Nanny deems the flag to be racist!
Nanny also deems the flying of the flag as "discrimination" against those who don't support England during the World Cup.
What a bunch of pathetic twats!
These are the private cars of employees, not company owned vehicles; Nanny has no authority over what people append to their own vehicles.
The rule (no flags, stickers, posters etc) applies to Bolton At Home branded vehicles (fair enough), public offices (fair enough) and any personal vehicles used for work and for which an employee claims 'essential or casual car allowance'.
Being English is not a matter of ethnic origin, or indeed geographic location, it is a state of mind.
