Are the left ashamed of Britain?

Dizzy has an interesting piece on the use of the Union flag which really annoys me. Not what Dizzy says, but the insinuation that to use the Union flag is right wing or almost something to be ashamed of. It really is interesting to watch how the left hate the fact that the Union flag is used. I remember as a kid I lived in America. In my class I had black friends, Asian friends, and even a native American Indian teacher. The one thing that united all of them (apart from me who wasn’t a US citizen) was every morning they stood up and pledged allegiance to the United States, and to the flag that was in every classroom. This happens across the whole of the US. And is it far right or racist. Is it hell!
I suppose by Kevin Maguire’s logic Obama is some sort of right wing reactionary for daring to be pictured with the stars and stripes. That analysis would certainly make a few Republicans wet themselves that’s for sure
If Kevin Maguire really thinks there is something wrong with using the Union flag then the only conclusion you can come to is that they are ashamed of Britain. Well given the mess the current PM has gotten us into, is it any wonder.
