There's nothing new about Ingerlund flags, not since Euro 96.
I just seem to recall around that time people were hanging them out of their windows, and not just when the football was on. You hardly seem to see one now, at least not in the places I've lived.

Farage's net approval ratings are about the same as Farage's. Both are hecklers who bathe in the sycophancy of their supporters. And reveal themselves to be thinned skinned, shallow and petulant when impertinent journalists put them on the spot. And neither in their hearts want the responsiblity of power.

It had long been said that a far-right party with a charismatic leader and without the baggage of street fighting and marches would do well, simply by tapping into the deep-rooted English sense of xenophobia. That, and we love a boss who gives the impression he'd be a lot happier on the factory floor than in an office and having a pint with the lads at the end of the day than having to attend another bloody tedious cocktail party with all those chinless bankers and politicians. Even though in reality he'd run a mile from anything that smacked of the plebs.
