The article is unmoderated, so you can sit back and marvel at the idiocy on offer:
WHAT - we're not allowed to fly the flag off St George without getting into trouble, but we have to fly this? Tell them to take a running jump, I say.

This flag has become a symbol of oppression, a symbol of a Europe that is now post-democratic. The freedom that Europe won after WW2 and the Cold War have been striped away by a bureaucratic Leviathan that ignores the wishes of sovereign states that have been gullible enough to have joined its ranks, it is in fact nothing more than a type of Soviet Union that used Lawyers and Red Tape instead of tanks and the Red Army to get control of countries.

If I personally see any EU flags flying in this country I will remove them.I urge others to do the same. Unfortunately under present EU law, which makes 75 percent of all laws now in this country, I am liable to be arrested without a trial, extradited and imprisoned indefinitely for a crime against the state. Our EU funded BBC media and government tell us the people that object to this are swivel eyed loonies. I call it being patriotic, standing up for British democracy, sovereignty and freedom and the rights of those now living whose parents and grandparents sacrificed their lives for during the war.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if people here didn't soon start burning the EUssr's precious political logo (in the form of a flag) in public. Just soo very many of us have had quite enough of them and their crazy ways. They won't even let people voluntarily renounce their EU citizenship, which a previous treasonous government allowed them to force upon us all. May She defend our laws it says in our national anthem, a reference to the Queens Coronation Oath; I think its high time that She did before others start doing her job for her.

The European flag should be flown everywhere in the UK - just to remind people we are now a vassal state of the EU and just how much the House of Commons is irrelevant. It should always be flown at the House of Commons when Parliament is not sitting - so most of the time then. Also a picture of Angela Merkel should always by on display, and be the same size, next to official portraits of the Queen.

Yesterday I suddenly realised that the number plates on my car had EU flags on (stupid not to have noticed them before). They are now covered with tape and will remain so. How did we get EU conned like this?

Does it really matter? - ironmorg, Coventry UK, 29/4/2012 7:20 OK let's simplify it for you. Does paying FIFTY ONE MILLION POUNDS A DAY to a corrupt communist regime matter to you? It's YOUR money. WAKE UP! Just think of what we could spend that money on and that is only ONE DAY's payment. People died fighting for YOUR freedom to spout apathetic rubbish like that.
