I went out for a (very rare) trip to the pub yesterday afternoon, having finished my tasks for the day, and got into a conversation about the Irish flag protests. We decided that, as the Union Flag is flown above Witney Town Hall for no more than about two days a year, we ought to start a "flag protest", with the aim of reaching an agreement whereby the national flag is flown for a set number of days per year -perhaps 30 days? As Witney is David Cameron's Parliamentary constituency the "Witney Flag Protest" would clearly accrue at least some coverage in the press.
This does, however, raise an interesting question - how many days per year will the Union Flag be flown over Belfast City Hall under the proposed compromise agreement with the nationalists; is it as much as 30 days per annum? And if, in a typical English town, the flag is not flown every day of the year, why should Belfast residents (or some of them) expect the flag to be flown every day?
