Christopher Bishop with the flagpole and Union flag at his housing association home in Kidlington. Picture Richard Cave
England, a once proud country, has now sunk so low in its own estimation that people regard it as "offensive" to fly our own flag. What a disgrace that somebody complained when disabled veteran Christopher Bishop flew the Union Jack in his garden in Kidlington. Whoever griped about it should be told - if you don't like our flag, get out of our country.
National pride is given all kinds of ugly insulting names these days by politically-correct bores and creeps, the same sort of people who closed their eyes tightly to what was going on in Rotherham. And a man who made sacrifices for his country is rewarded with pettiness and prejudice.
To say that a flagpole is a structural alteration to the house and needs permission is just an absurd excuse. I say let Christopher Bishop fly his flag and let's join him when St George's Day is made, as it should be, our national holiday.
