'Noisy' Union Jack lowered by council after just ONE resident complained about it flapping in the wind
*Locals reacted angrily after council was forced to remove a Union Flag
*The brand new flag was raised by Totnes Town Council at civic hall
*Locals say it helped to ignite patriotic pride ahead of the Euro 2016
*But one killjoy resident complained the flag was making too much noise ... -wind.html
At the meeting, it was pointed out that the flag was only flown on special occasions and suggestions were made that if a flag was to fly over the council-run hall on a permanent basis it should be the town's own colours.

The councillor who took it down, Ben Piper, said: 'It has never been customary to fly the Union Flag over the Civic Hall constantly.

'Somebody did have a moan about the flag and it was drawn to our attention that it was still up.'

More pathetic pandering to the regressive left. Let's vote leave and fly our flag with pride.

The Union Flag might offend certain people. Let's replace it with a white sheet. Much more appropriate for the Remain camp.

Don't suppose we know the origins of the person who complained? Vote Leave.

The story has disappeared off the site. I wonder if they finally realised it was bollocks?

Grandather John Pickup, 68, told The Sun: 'We've fought and won two world wars and finally won our referendum to come out of the European Union. But now we are producing pathway signs in kilometres.'

:lol: Managed to shoehorn the World Wars into it.

Comments just as batshit:

A Labour council taking revenge against its own voters? Surely not?

Sorry if this is harsh but are these people fucking simple?

Furious motorists stuck in traffic queues in road repairs that started TWO years ago blast the council after they realise 'workers' are actually CARDBOARD CUTOUTS ... TOUTS.html


Did people actually think is was a real person and have just realised it's cardboard? They thought a real person would just stand there completely still for hours holding a a Site Safety sign? They shouldn't even be allowed to operate a vehicle, to be honest.

In all seriousness, though, the story is bollocks. They haven't provided a single example of someone actually believing the cardboard cutouts were real workers. The Mail did still feel the need to clarify it, though:
And now the long-running works - which began back in 2018 - have come under fire after cardboard 'workmen' were spotted.

The 'workmen' are in fact cutouts used to issue health and safety guidance on construction sites across the country.
