An English soccer fan decorated his house with St George flags. But:
"Fan William Hodgson has been ordered to take down his England flags because they make a condemned street look untidy. Housing chiefs told William, 50, the St George banners "bring down" the area, even though most houses are empty and are soon to be demolished."
The English people are OK but their government appears to hate them.
And Another Nutty Attack on Displaying the English Flag
Just when you think that global warming alarmism cannot get any more inane, along comes another story which shows that there is a bottomless well of stupid:
"Drivers showing their support for England with window flags during the World Cup will pay more in fuel costs, an academic has claimed. An average car with two flags attached burns an extra litre of fuel per hour at an average of 70 mph, said Manchester University's Dr Antonio Filippone. He also calculated that 500,000 drivers all doing the same will create 2.8 million kg of carbon dioxide emissions. The extra fuel consumption is caused by the flags creating drag".
