Even The Queen's been cancelled by the warriors of woke now :rolleyes

Students decide to change the decorations in their Common Room: Headline news that everyone piles in on.

Oh, and the Government was found to have broken the law by giving COVID-19 contracts to their mates, but that's not important...

I was going to remind you it says 'No Politics', but BLM is a political movement isn't it, so I won't

While busy picking the England cricket team, government has nothing at all to say about fans booing the England football team.
One is news, the other obviously isn't.

Yes it's a bit like all that fuss there was about the size of the Union Jack flags that government ministers have in the background during interviews isn't it?.

Just another Dead Cat to distract people from paying attention to the important stuff :(

Eh?. It was that ultra-woke BBC news presenter who set that one off when she took the mickey out of the Union Jack behind Robert Jenrick wasn't it?. 
Within minutes the Twitter mob were having a field day and it was all over the papers :rolleyes

Having flags behind you any time you're on TV is an American thing to show how "patriotic" someone is. Jenrick decided to "make a statement" and deservedly got the piss taken out of him.

Of course the "anti-woke" brigade (nb "woke" is pretty much now a term only used by the political right to deride anyone who points out their hypocrisy, cf "cancel culture") immediately used this as an excuse to whip up a media frenzy over a trivial issue because, of course, that would distract people from the serious issues that are affecting this country that Jenrick and co are responsible for.

So, whether or not it was a deliberate Dead Cat, it certainly became one because the Tories then decided to up the ante by declaring that *all* Government buildings should fly the Union Flag *every day*, something which has never been considered necessary before now.

I'm really focced off with all the fuss over historical comments, suddnely dug up and brought to the fore. I'll wager theres not a manjack amongst us thats not made some sort of comment in the past that may now be considered to be offensive to/by any number of other sections of the community, be they multi gender/black/non white/left handed/gay/disabled/bmw audi drivers and on and on and on. I know I have

I think there's a difference between having flags (EU or UK) behind you at an official function on government premises, and having whopping Union Jacks behind you during a Zoom interview in your converted loft space :lol
Yes the flag shaggers rightly deserve the piss taken

I assume you apply the same set of principles to the EU flag then?.

Oh dear.

There's a difference between someone appearing at a government/ EU press conference and sticking a bloody great flag behind them in their home just to show how "patriotic" they are.

Yes the flag shaggers
I find this trope perticually offensive. And find it perticually odd thing to say by someone who was paid by and continues to be paid by the crown.
 The left seems to hate this country. If you fly the English flag at best you are sneered at by the likes of lady Nugent at worst called a racist, if you fly the union flag you are called a flag shagger.I want to see it on every government building.

I find lots of things offensive, and who I'm paid by is none of your business  :finger

Hang on, you said 'having flags behind you any time you're on TV' earlier.

Yes, *any* time, not simply when it's appropriate, but ANY TIME!

I trust that's clear now, but please enjoy some more pedantic nit-picking if it makes you feel better.

Samuel Johnson ---himself a politically committed Tory. So you now agree with the Right.
