Flying the flag


As a quick antidote to the previous football friendly post- drivers could be fined or penalised for flying Cross of St George flags. Let’s get one thing straight- they’ll be punished for obscuring their own vision or placing the flags dangerously. they’re not being punished for being patriotic, they’re being punished for being idiots.

I found one of those window flags that had fallen off a car on Sunday and attached it to the back of my bike’s mudguard. Sadly my trip along the banks of the Irwell ripped it off.
