Union Flag now a Doormat

#1
It seems the homeless charity Shelter has resorted to selling Union flag doormats as a way of raising money in the UK.

Full article and comments can be found here

Apologies if I'm duplicating. I did look and couldn't find anything elsewhere.

Why don't people get a fecking grip this isn't the states, its not disrespecting the flag

Disrespecting the national flag is about being ashamed to fly it incase in offends anyone

I'd buy a union jack door mat, same as i'd buy a union jack towel/hat/shirt/boxers/

W+nkers, drip about something worthwhile

Ooh yay, outrage. :roll:

The whole point about this nation is that we aren't one of those insecure, johnny-come-lately countries that feels the need to fetishise symbols like the flag.

Anyway, its for charity FFS, you dullards.

I guess you will be purchasing these items to use on HM Naval Ships?

There are millions of people living here who are very vocally proud of their Pakistani roots. Shelter could make a fortune for the homeless producing flags for them, but I bet they don't.

Yay, it's now turned into the DuSKy ImYgRunt bAsHing thred.

Only took 11 posts to get there too, in spite of valiant efforts of previous posters to treat this story as the non-event and feeble bandwagon outrage starter it was.

Well done AWOL.

The debate on the other hand, continues to rage on the newspaper website.
It seems like both Saints and I have thrown our opinions in the mix :D .
