Police instructed to issue £50 spot fines for anyone caught with them on their cars.
In a parting shot against the UK, European bureaucrats have decreed that ENGLAND fans may not display flags on their cars in support of the national team in this summer’s World Cup.
The move comes as the UK has decided to leave the European Union, and experts believe is a vindictive move against the UK’s national pride.
While the move only affects England, as none of Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland qualified for the World Cup, it is believed the decision was meant as a parting shot against the UK as a whole for our decision to leave Europe.
While it should be noted that Brussels bureaucrats have decided that car flags in support of football teams have been banned in all countries, not just in the UK, as the UK is only country where car flags are predominately used this is clearly a move against British national pride.
Steve Evans, a football supporter from Ellesmere Port, plans to defy the new legislation regardless of the prospect of a £50 fine.
The EU can’t tell me what to do. If I want to support Engerland I will. It’s things like this is why I voted out.
The ban on using car flags is expected to be lifted as soon as Brexit negotiations have been concluded and Britain has control of its laws once again. In the meantime, however, Britain is powerless to stop Brussels from banning the use of car flags for England football supporters.
England and Tranmere Rovers fan, Bob Dunne, from Birkenhead, believes he knows why the flags have been banned. He commented:
They said it was a health and safety issue, but that’s crap. I know it was because some immigrants complained they were offended by it. I can’t wait for Brexit when the immigrants can go home and we can use our flags again.
What do you think of the ban on using car flags in support of YOUR football team? Will you defy the ban and display them anyway? Let us know in the comments below.
