YAY! It's a beautiful thing- especially with selective coloring. I know it's not something you all do there- and this could indicate that an evil Torry lives here... and that's too bad.
Bill Phillips: Not all Tories are evil Ellie. I even have friends who vote Conservative. I also have a friend who is a Conservative supporter who cannot understand why anyone could possibly be a labour supporter if they are well educated and have a degree.....I kid you not

I think the Union Jack Flag is an example of 'planned obsolescence' if contemporary political shinanigans are anything to go by.

I would have preferred to see the pink flowers of the clematis Montana Rubens in colour.
Bill Phillips: It is interesting (well to me anyway) that as companies become globalised and we have these huge trading blocks like the EU, people are becoming more tribal and nationalistic. It is perhaps a feeling of helplessness in the face of "them" and a need to belong to a group we can identify with on a human scale

Very good. The selective colouring works very well and looks good against the black and white. Who are the Tories that Elizabeth mentioned? The SNP keep banging on about them, too.
Bill Phillips: There was the Torrey Canyon perhaps she means that

very patriotic - but the Union Jack is a good symbol of Britain's unity which may last for ever!
Bill Phillips: We are not a nation of flag wavers but we are in danger of falling apart as a United Kingdom

But the blue colours of the Union Jack could be a bit more dominant! And waht is about Wales and North- Ireland?
Bill Phillips: The Cross of St George, the cross of St Patrick and the cross of St Andrew. Wales is not represented because at the time Wales was part of England

Oh sorry, I should shut my mouth as 'Kraut'! But I'm a bit angry about Mrs. May's last sentences about the refugees!
Bill Phillips: So am I Philine, but this is what we can expect form our government now
Niiiice one.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Jacquelyn. Pleased you like it

I think I prefer the greyery, Will.
Bill Phillips: I don't normally do selective colouring
A very nice use of selective colouring Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Richard
Long may it wave...
Bill Phillips: I hope so too Larry
Apparently a lady was recently forced by her local (Labour) council to take down a Union flag she was flying on her allotment as it could be considered racist or somesuch, and then the council proceeded to dismantle the flagpole on H.& S.grounds in that it might fall over and hurt somebody, sign of the times!!!!
