Flying the flag

By Andrew Allison, Head of Campaigns

Robert Jenrick, the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, announced last week that he will be compelling all councils to fly the Union Jack on all official buildings. Cue outrage from the woke metropolitans. I was interviewed by Kevin O'Sullivan on talkRADIO yesterday about it. I said that I thought it was a good idea. The vast majority of people are proud of their country and are proud of their flag. There is nothing wrong with that - indeed it brings the country together. Click below to watch it.
