Faux patriotism alert!

I’ve been meaning to have a rant about this all week. Cars all over town are sprouting English flags in the long and boring build up to Sven’s boys losing the World Cup. I got a bit foamy at the mouth and ranty in my comment on the MEN article-

Far too many of those flags are on cars that were made abroad, that are driven to the supermarket to buy food flown halfway across the world, even if it’s in season here.

If people really are so proud of their country they should show it all the time- buy local products- not just whenever “our boys” have a tournament to lose.
