Dilema

Started by: tomplum (9328) 

Being a , White , English born subject of Her Maj, I'm planning a display for the up coming jubilee celebrations at the front of my house but, being a considerate , respectful person , I don't want to offend any of our 'Johnny foreigners ' or their Woke, supporting do gooders and trouble makers,
So do I go George cross , Union Jack or Jolly Roger ?

Given the importance of this coming weekend, I would go Wigan Warriors Ancient and Loyal flag (which I have already done).

If you go Jolley Roger some one will moan because the skull and crossbones are normally black

Why not a Commonwealth flag? After all the Queen is head of state of Commonwealth countries.

Yes I know they are wanting to become a republic and not ALL commonwealth countries have the Queen as head of state.

thanks for the suggestions, I was thinking Jolly roger because it gives the dingy sailors a uplift and hopefully makes them feel welcome,

If you can't make your mind up use a white flag. Simply!!! Give up. Or use our national flag, which is the Union Jack. Personally I would use our national flag because no matter what you do you can't please everyone, so please yourself.

I suppose it depends on how yoo see yourself, do you consider yourself to be English first, and British second, or vice versa, if you are English first then the Flag of St George, would be the thing, if you hold to being British first, then it would be the Union Jack, or if you do not have any allegiance to your country, in that case, you might think it more appropriate to use the Pirate Flag

It was saying on GB News, that in the recent local elections, in Scotland there was a 40% turnout, and of that 40%, only 40% voted for the SNP, but Scotland have a Proportional Representation voting system, which makes it harder to vote for the person you want to vote for.

It would be the Union flag not the Union Jack as it is only jack if at sea

Both the Union Flag or Union Jack are both technically correct. It is the way in which it is flown correctly which is most important, right way up or upside down. I was in Buxton last Friday where one was flying wrong. Much to the embarrassment of my friends I told the owner so. It is amazing how many people do not know the difference.

Well on my Union Flag/Jack it has a picture of the Queen so, If the stripes are incorrectly co ordinated , ( and it was made in China) I'll be forced to display it the right way up even if it is upside down,

Makes me wonder why Tom the liar is making such a fuss of the jubilee.

He hates the Queen and the Royal family.
Maybe he's just trying to show people what a great guy he is.
After all he does like all the attention it brings, it's good for his ego.

I tend to find when someone makes a point of saying....."I dont want to upset the woke brigade but......." It generally means "I do want to upset the woke brigade and don't care if I do"

Do you really think someone passing your house is going to kick off over whatever flag you are flying in t`garden Tom?

Surely not

I think you will find, if you have read his post further up this thread, that he has no reverence for the royals. And for the record, I find Tom a very entertaining person and an all round good egg. Having said that, I am not in his or any other gang. I take people as I find them. And I find Tom to be a very helpful and polite man. And he takes some stick from a few people on here too.

all I can say is. None of the ' bannermen' have never met me, They are judgemental keyboard monitors and bottom feeders, I am so glad of the ignore button, thank you Admin for two things,
1. the ignore button
2. the fact that you let them show everyone that, they are destructive , negative and intent on spoiling good national pride threads,

Every one to their own. If people want to celebrate the jubilee so be it . If they want to spend money on tat be it mugs plates flags etc that's up to them. If they want to spend a fortune to make some one else rich again that is up to them .Buy the tat to invest and put it away for 50 years and get back less than they paid for it because every body else has the same idea. We are already reading stories of people buying items then putting them on E bay at 10 times what they cost

Judging by the number of people coming into our country from countries which have never had a Royal Family and are not interested in them, how long will it be before the Union Jack is replaced and our country becomes a Republic?

I will give it 50/60 years, especially with the ever increasing birthrate of the newcomers!
