Seeing red over yellow stars
AS a visitor to the enchanting town of Huntingdon, I was interested to see the Continental Market and was not disappointed by the sight of various national flags, smells and variety of exotic goods on sale. However, my enjoyment of this friendly activity
AS a visitor to the enchanting town of Huntingdon, I was interested to see the Continental Market and was not disappointed by the sight of various national flags, smells and variety of exotic goods on sale.
However, my enjoyment of this friendly activity was marred when I noticed a highly controversial political symbol on one of the stalls. It was an EU flag advertisement.
I asked the stallholder to remove it, as it is offensive to many people. It is offensive if you are a farmer, a fisherman, a small business man or if you object to seeing cutbacks in welfare services while Britain loses billions of pounds annually to the EU.
It is offensive if you object to fraud and corruption, as for 13 years the EU accounts have not been signed as correct.
You may also want to watch:
It is offensive if you value the loyalty of those who throughout the world have stood by this country in her time of need, but have since been betrayed by our signing the European Treaties. Most of all, it is offensive if you value freedom.
I regret to say that the French stallholder dismissed my request with a shrug and argued the point in a manner ill-becoming a guest to our country, where he is allowed to trade to his advantage.

May I suggest that only national flags be displayed at events such as markets? Divisive politics has no place in such an atmosphere, which is supposed to create harmony and good will.
