That's so incredibly fucking ridiculous that I'm lost for words. Our national flag is not something to be toyed around with to create a politically correct idealism. It's our identity, it has been for many long years, and it should stay the way it is.

This pisses me off, it's happened before during sporting events etc. where big companies, I think Land Rover was one, have been asked to take down the union jack 'cos apparently it gives out the wrong message and could be seen as racist. It's turning this country into a cesspit of political correctness...I mean what the fuck, the government of the UK is telling people to take down the flag of the UK? It's a different story where soldiers in Iraq run up to a burning tank going "whoo!" and "ha!" and stick a union jack on it...

Once there was a boy who wore a T-shirt with the national flag printed on it on St George's day and was told to go home and change it because it was viewed as a symbol of fascism...

What?!? I can't belive this. What a stupid, crap and all round shitaculer idea! You can't change the Union Jack! I'm all for brining down racial tentions but that will not help one iota, also racial tentions may get worse not better. It's madness I tells ya!

Oh-no...remember how complicated I thought the original was when I had to draw it as a kid, this will sure confuse all little schoolkids all around Europe, besides, it's a flag and it's been like that for a long time, why change it...?

New Design: Kinda cool looking
Reason: Utter stupidity

Why the fuck is your national flag such a bad thing? Like JC Fran's post about the flag being a symbol of facism, what dose that mean? He's being patriotic, what's wrong with that? Just becasue there's no black in it dosen't mean it's racist there's no black in our...oops I shouldn't have said that....

its not the stripes that are making them pissed. its the fact that someone is so offended by their own countries flag that they are trying to change it.

WTF?!? Now I'm really pissed! Next we all have to clothes that have black on it, or we'll be considered rascist. I have the union jack at home, and I'll never change it.. and I don't give a shit about any prat says about it.
Sometimes I feel like I'm rascist just coz I'm white, and alot more people feel the same way.

Well, first of all, I'm all for freedom of expression, so I believe anyone is entitled to express themselves any way they want, even if it looks racist. I don't do it, but then again, I'm not sure any of what I do is or not racist (xcept the obvious ones...).
