HELP WANTED - Please fly the EU flag as often as you can - or we may be fined

Post by Tony Bennett on 12.08.10 8:18

This is a very serious issue and I should be very grateful if all forum members could help in any way they can.

The article below (and many others in British newspapers this week) informs us that Britain is not flying the EU flag often enough. As a result, the whole country risks being FINED by the EU for not promoting it enough.

PLEASE do all you can. I'd recommend you buy as many flags as you possibly can - and then go from shop to business indeed anywhere you can, begging people to fly the flag (the EU flag that is) as prominently as possible.

If we can all pull together to avoid being fined by the EU, who knows, there may be sufficient funds made available for Home Secretary Theresa May to require a British police force to undertake a badly-needed re-investigation into, er, the incompetence of the Portuguese police.


Hague flies the flag to put EU in its place

Whitehall has finally admitted that it is forced by law - on pain of fines - to boost European Union propaganda and fly the European flag.

Until now, civil servants have been coy about confessing we may not even choose nowadays which flags to run up our state flagpoles. The Coalition is proving far more open about such matters.

William Hague wants everyone to know about this outrage. His Foreign Office this week disclosed that we are compelled to fly the European flag, and promote the EU logo, owing to something called EC Regulation 1828/2006, Articles 7(2) and 9.

The Department for Communities and Local Government (home of Eric Pickles!) is legally obliged to parade the EU flag at the front of its premises for a week every May.

The Government must also 'highlight the added value of the intervention of the Community' at sites supported by the European Development Fund.

Guess who helps fund that fund. We do. So we pay for it first time round - and then have to pay all over again for promotional activity giving Brussels the credit.

The Foreign Office said in a parliamentary answer this week that Mr Hague is ' keen to challenge' these rules.

It added that the EU flag will henceforth be flown on the inferior of the two flagpoles that are outside the Communities Department. Ha! Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Johnny Continental.

Veteran Eurosceptic Lord Stoddart, who elicited this information, says it is 'completely and utterly outrageous' that we are forced to fly any flag.

'I've been making speeches against the European Union since 1962,' says one-time Labour MP Stoddart. 'It is difficult to express how angry I am. I have become almost worn out by it."

Blood and cadaver alerts
dismissed by UK Government

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
