Council Bans Flag As “It is Offensive to Some Muslims”

Meet Eleanor Jackson: university lecturer, teacher and Labour’s loony lefty town councillor in the quiet Somerset town of Radstock. Hardly a hotbed of religious unrest, yet that hasn’t stopped Jackson from waging war against that menace of these inclusive, progressive times: the St George’s Flag. Radstock Council have banned the flag from flying over the town for fear that it might offend local Muslim residents. Apparently because it was used during the Crusades nine hundred years ago, Jackson says it has to go:

“My big problem is that it is offensive to some Muslims but even more so that it has been hijacked by the far right. My thoughts are we ought to drop it for 20 years.”

In its place will fly the far more friendly Union flag, alongside the rainbow flag in support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender pride movement. You couldn’t make it up…

          What’s really needed is the star and crescent on a green background flying on the other side of the Union flag to the lgbt rag. Very multi-culti.

It has nothing to do with the crusades and everything to do with far-right groups using St.G’s flag to represent their own racist ideology.

      The Red Cross association with the Crusades is ours.
      All participating powers wore their own national dress and colours. The different surcoats the Christians wore related to who they owed allegiance to, i.e. if they were Templars, they would wear the white and red cross, the Hospitallers wore the black and white, the king of Jerusalem’s knights wore the white and powder blue etc

    I would suggest that all those who oppose this ridiculous woman & her opposition to English identity start flying a St George Cross & Union Jack on a permanent basis.

    Will she ban the Union Jack because it offends muslim beliefs due to our involvement in Afghanistan (twice), & Iraq.

    Will she ban Christmas decorations because that may offend muslim religious beliefs.

    This is another example of Labour cultural genocide on top of there cynical calculated mass immigration policy ‘to rub the noses of the right in multiculturalism’ but also to build their power base for the future. It is a fact that the majority of immigrants vote Labour.

    Let’s be clear about one thing – not a single moslem is, was or will be offended by the English flag flying in England.

    This is just good old lefty bollox.

    Zorba the Brit says:

    Why do people like this believe that they can make decisions that affect our heritage, our culture, our national pride? The fact that some members of the ‘extreme right’ have chosen to use the cross of St George should not deprive the rest of Britain from using it as the emblem of our country – which it is.

    By an extension of the ‘logic’ that underlies Eleanor Jackson’s decision, then if the extreme right were to adopt a picture of the Queen as their motif we would have to lock Her Majesty away in the Tower never to be seen again for fear of her image ‘offending’ one or two people.

    Finally, though I doubt that any sensible British muslim would be offended by the sight of a flag, let’s just assume for the moment that one or two were. So what? Its ok to be offended. Life is full of ‘offence’. I am offended by the sight of starving children in Africa on news bulletins; I am offended by the subjugation of women in parts of the muslim world; I am offended by the price of energy in this country because successive governments have failed to plan for our future properly and have sold us down the river by signing up to treaties that cause winter misery to millions of old people; I am offended by the sight of grossly overweight people waddling out of McDonald’s, I am offended that some councils will not erect nativity scenes in their towns at Christmas even though I’m not a Christian. If I were a Christian I might be offended by the sight of mosques in our cities but I doubt that Radstock council would have them razed. Mostly I am offended by extremely ugly town councillors dictating what we should and should not do and going around being vicariously outraged or offended on behalf of others. I doubt that anyone will suffer so egregiously at the sight of the St George’s cross that they will faint in the street or swoon as Victorian ladies were wont to do at the sight of an ankle.

    It is an impossibility to rid the world of offence because each one of the 6+ billion people on the planet is ‘offended’ by different things personal to them. Offending and being offended by emblems are the least of mankind’s worries. They are here to stay. Let’s just accept that like our grandparents did and stop paying attention to fools like Jackson.

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
