There is no law against flying our nation’s flag

First published in Letters

I find it beyond belief that Christopher Bishop has been told to remove his country’s flag.

Insensitive? To whom?

There is no law that I know of that does not allow the Union Flag to be flown. I’m not a loony or a nationalist but am very concerned that this land has lost its way.

If everybody had such pride it would be a better place.
