Is it crass and insincere when Mahmoud Abbas (or other national leaders) appear with their flags?
MPs are appearing with the flag or pictures of the queen in the background of TV interviews. This isn't something we do as a culture. It is crass.
So it's only bad when British politicians do it?

It may be something that you don't do, or I don't do, but please remember (or realise for the first time) that we are not the whole electorate.
Yep. See also "we don't do this in this country". We certainly haven't, but things like that can change. While I don't think "where's the flags in this report?" (James Wild MP) will ever stop being ridiculous, the PM appearing at a press conference with a flag will probably become standard.

Just like America, and I wonder how long before they have to be publicly Christian as well?

Steve Turner, who beat Beckett to the left nomination, is tweeting about the day job. I hope Turner knows what he's doing here.
I saw him on Newsnight he came across as arrogant and condescending. The good news is the left vote is split three ways between Steve Turner, Sharon Graham and Howard Beckett.
