As we say, the government has been driving for the UK to celebrate the flag more. If this has passed you by, then lucky you, but let’s change that because we are all in this together.
In March, Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said government buildings will fly the flag every day rather than on special occasions like the Queen’s birthday. He said the flag is “a proud reminder of our history and the ties that bind us”.
Then, we found out that the Department for Transport spent £700 on four Union flags in December, to be placed at their headquarters. Money well spent.
At every occasion, they have been laughed at, criticised, mocked and jeered at. But the flag brigade have held on tight in the face of adversity and continued flying the flags for flags, for Britain’s sake.
In a statement issues to the press about this absolute duvet of a flag in Wales, a UK Government spokesperson said: “Ty William Morgan is a significant UK Government building and is the first of its kind in Wales.
“As is practice with similar UK Government sites across the United Kingdom and around the world, it will feature the Union flag as part of its visual branding.
“The flag of Wales is flown at Ty William Morgan which also contains other specifically Welsh branding, while the name of the new building was chosen to reflect the UK Government’s investment in Wales and Welsh culture.”
But this did not quell the anger of Welsh Labour politicians who thought it was absolutely ridiculous:
I honestly don’t think they understand https://t.co/g6KndISeHb
Elin Jones said: “Therefore, from next week, no more flags. Otherwise, I’ll be tempted to fly the flag of the Independent Tropical Republic of Ceredigion behind me here. So, we move on to a flagless week next week please.”
Who’s going to tell her about the 32-metre flag in Cardiff, then?
