Lindy McDowell: Eddie Izzard's dove will not fly here
Comedian Eddie Izzard means well, but his new Northern Ireland flag (he’s on a charity run and has carried the flag of each country he’s run through) is a joke.
Green with a dove of peace? Spare us the P7 naffery, Ed.
Besides, if there is one thing we really do not need another of in Northern Ireland — then surely to God it has to be a flag of any kind. We’ve had it up to here with bunting and emblems.
You’re grand as you are, Eddie.
Shove the dove.
