I suspect, although I'm not sure, that the police can ban just about anything in the short term if they feel it may prevent a breach of the peace.

Call me cynical but the original article does lead me to think that somebody, somewhere could be laying the foundation of a St George/Union flag ban.

A certain London borough made a big stink about the St George's cross a few years back - while I didn't have one up it incensed me that the local politicians should attempt to ban the national flag being displayed in it's own country !

Is this the start of equal treatment, just a flash in the pan or possibly even instructions from 'on high' as a sop to the weaker minded voters to attempt to keep the current mob in power later this year ?

Or perhaps I'm just too cynical ?

"Sadiq Khan, of the Muslim Council of Britain, said he failed to see "how the carrying of national flags causes anti-social behaviour". "

Aye cock now't wrong with carrying The Union Flag. The flag on which the Sun never set.

Oh if ya feels you have a right to sum other national flag then go home and fly to your arts content.

If my memory serves me correctly certain universities banned students hanging flags and banners of Saint George Cross during Euro 2004 because it was thought it may offend certain people. This country has gone crazy, it's just bloody ridiculous when you ban the flag of England.
