Ignorance of flag burners on show

Published 03/04/2015

It was very depressing to look at the photographs of people burning the Union flag on St Patrick's Day, as indeed it is depressing to see loyalists burn the Irish tricolour on bonfires.

Of course, what is ironic is that those people burning the Union flag were out supposedly 'celebrating' St Patrick, whose cross is one of the three crosses that form the Union flag. But then, they are probably too stupid to realise this.
