    The British people are commited to ending European influence over Britain they all vote for that and anything that shows support for Europe such as flags or telling school children the advantages of Europe is considered subversive, reactionary and unsavoury and is thus seen as an outright attack on British values in the same way that flying the flag of ISIS. It shows people having contempt for British values.

    Removal from the EU and total independence is a British constitutional value voted for in 2016.

    If a headteacher told school kids they should support ISIS that head teacher would be probably be sacked and face criminal charges.
    You haven’t answered my question though. And no, that wasn’t on the ballot. The Leave campaign said we would remain in the single market. And calling the EU equivalent to ISIS just makes you an idiot.

    True but it's illegal to show support for groups like ISIS, Al Quaeda, and several far right groups, because they are against British values.
    The EU is opposed by the British people who voted against the EU, and as thus the EU is against British values.
    There is a massive difference between ISIS and EU.

    Whilst ISIS is against British values, that isn't the sole reason why we arrest supporters of these terror groups.

    The main reason why the government is cracking down on these supporters is because they organise and support attacks that indiscriminately maim/kill citizens.

    Showing pro-EU symbols shows defiance for Brexit and the will of all British people and such an act is treasonous. The flag also shows evidence of unsavoury political thoughts or advertises support for unsavoury political thoughts against the majority of British citizens.

    We voted not to belong, not to end the EU. We can share values with an organisation or a country we do not belong to. Even when we leave (assuming we do), there will be many values we share with other EU countries.

    Yeah, that's why it's illegal to show support for groups classified as terrorists...

    Also, as has been said - We're not at war with the EU.

    So if the British people vote for Burger King over McDonalds, will McDonalds be against British values?

    Lol. The difference is McDonalds and BK don't have sufficient influence over Britain's political direction to yet be considered for or against British values.
    If all British people voted for BK then you couldn't really accuse anyone supporting McDonalds as having inappropriate subversive political thoughts or disrupted thoughts. Their thoughts are not likely to affect or endanger Britain's overall future.

    Suppose that the people of Britain can vote for a third option in this referendum, KFC. KFC is seen as a choice by people who are against both McDonalds and Burger King. However, despite being a listed option, KFC receives only one vote. Can KFC legitimately use their failure, and the fact that at least somebody voted for them, to argue for the prohibition of both McDonalds and Burger King?

    Tea is not British, it comes from Norway.
    I'll have you know that my tea is very British. It is Indian (a former subject of the great and bountiful empire) and also registered in Ireland for tax purposes (the rebellious child that will soon return home).

    Its one of the worse conspiracies in the world. British people have been tricked into believing tea comes from India when in fact, its a waste product of trolls living in Norway. You have been drinking troll **** all these years. Thats why no one in Norway drinks tea, they only have coffee.

    Should shops and websites that sell the EU flag and EU stickers be banned from doing so because it's seen as anti-British?

    Also should schools be banned from display of EU flag?
    I know a secondary school where the EU flag is still (as of October 2017) displayed in the main corridor, this is wrong as it encourages children into bad political habits and as such the headteacher should be fined or sacked, and banned from working with miners for a set period of say 5 years, due to impressioning unsavoury thoughts on children.
    Flags should be down to personal preference unless someone is showing support through a flag to a terrorist organisation. In short i would ban

    ISIS flags
    IRA Flags
    Hezbullah
    Communist flags

    If the EU was to go to war with us I would ban the flag then.

    The thing is we are becoming an independent nation but we can never achieve full independence unless people have full belief in independence. Showing any support for the EU is expression of unsavoury and disrupted thoughts. We need to ensure children etc are not influenced by such disrupted thinking so schools should not be promoting anything EU.

    The thing about being an independent country is knowing who we are, our identity and our destiny, we need to know people's beliefs on the Brexit issue, who people are for instance in teaching or even on job applications. We need a pro-Brexit youth squad who can promote the issue visit schools and find out if pupils are being wrongly influenced. Also special inset days for teaching staff and TAs and suspension of staff who are suspected of inappropriate or disrupted thoughts regarding our national freedom. Teachers should feel free to admit and critisise thrmselves in school assembly if they've had such unsavory thoughts.

    Instead we should kindly offer support to people who are unsure about their beliefs in independence, such as support groups and openly allow people to self critisise any inappropriate thoughts and thus set their minds at ease, then we can all set our country free from Europe.

    I'm going to fly an EU flag when (if?) the day of Brexit ever comes. L'unité dans la diversité! :cry2:

    I like this rendition of our beautiful nation anthem, even if the French and German pronunciations are a bit off.

    Sure, as long as we remember tea originally came from China (it's not native to India, you realise?).

    1. Not against will of All British People.
    2. Not against will of Majority of Electoral Register
    3. May be against those who voted for Brexit and dont regret it because they ignore the facts.
    4. We are still in the EU you toerag, the UK government merely triggered an article which starts the process of leaving, by stating that we will withdraw from the EU in 2019.
    5. Incase you didn't know it is 2017.
    6. I would rather talk about inflation, or a failing education system. How about National Debt? None of those were caused by the EU, privatisation of national industries - successive British governments again to blame.
    7. It seems easy to blame people from another country than to blame the true culprits at home, the ones who you elected, And yes the EU Bureaucrats are elected by each region of the EU a bit like each region of the UK gets an MP. You know it is outrageous to get angry that another part of the UK gets an MP that you can't vote for when you get to vote for your own in your region.
    8. The need to get away from the EU is generally the Immigration, however the EU allows controls on free movement that YOUR BRITISH Government doesn't implement... need I say anymore?
