Need new specs. I thought the thread was titled "Olympic Satire Ban".

On second thoughts, I was right. and my eyes are just fine 'n' dandy.

Yes and you may notice the lack of bleating on about how this is "dissing" anyone.

Flags and emblems eh? You'd have thought the powers that be would have learnt from the years of toadying nonsense that we've manged to generate over this in Norn Iron. Looks like becoming one of our finest exports, along with craic.

Surely the Union flag represents all of our great nation!
The porridge wogs seem afflicted by the same lack of humour the sheep shaggers have suffered from for the last 300 years :)

It will be on display everywhere, as an integral part of the flag of GBNI. However that may change in a couple of years...... The remnant (red on white asterisk) will be kinda boring IMHO.

As a scot, born in Scotland of Scottish and Irish parents and raised in England since the age of 8, I cant see why the flags of each of the nations that make up the Union cannot be flown at venues as appropriate in addition to the Union Flag.

LOC need to sort this and quick, issues like this should have been resolved ages ago.

IOC saying its not on is NOT acceptable.

No no, the Union Flag doesn't have the yellow of the Province of Ulster on it. Don't start me - I can bore you for hours on this - it's on the radio every bloody day now that the cultural fest that is the marching, oops, parading season is upon us.

lot of debate about the nation ere, as our glorious leader suggested "it's a country within a nation." or there abouts. mind you it's not as if the peripheries of the Uk/Britain/British isles like unionism. still feked if I know anymore. oh and would you ban the London flag? it is a British team, therefore a British game, however it's not hosted in Glasgow now is it?

Alternatively, get a fucking grip. It's a piece of cloth with a pattern on it.

What's with jocks banging on about this stuff all the time, anyway? They seem determined to make themselves a victim of some sort. They're behaving, as a nation, like 'the only gay in the village'.

I thought it was the "London Olympics"?

Why are they sending people into Scotland in the first place?
Because the sports events all have to be, erm, in London. Except the sailing. And the rowing. And the Association Football. And others.

That’s why the the Un-PC & Toffs’ sports, however, have been put into Woolwich (where there will be no legacy) and Greenwich park (leaving no legacy beyond trashing the Park). There is no way Bisley, Burleigh, Badminton etc could have been developed because all the events, erm, have to be in the host city…

I am not entirely convinced that the Scotch national flag will enhance our Olympic visitors experience?
