    We haven’t left the EU.
    Bit of a pedantic comment don’t you think?

    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.
    I hope you're joking. What your saying sounds like something coming out Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union.

    No it isn’t. We’ve barely started negotiations and we don’t know what the final terms will be.
    But we are going to leave and if the negotiations haven’t move to trade by the new year there is no negotiations

    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.
    No, but organisations that do should be boycotted.

    subversive, reactionary and unsavoury

    an outright attack on British values in the same way that flying the flag of ISIS.

    contempt for British values.

    Perhaps we should ban all other countries flags and stickers as it is "anti-british".
    lol you need help

    urgently

    But the EU isn't a country, it's an organistation. Just like ISIS isn't a country, UEFA isn't a country either.

    I can't understand. Crimea voted to leave Ukraine and join Russia and the day after their referendum they simply left Ukraine and joined Russia. Now Crimea is thriving.
    Yet Britain voted to leave the EU and over a year later nothing has happened. We should have just left on the Friday after the referendum. Closed our borders, scrapped all EU laws and rules and returned to being a great nation as we were before we joined the EU. Our economy could thriving now.

    I don't think schools should display the EU flag anymore, but why would the sale of it be banned?, e.g we're not in the USA, but the sale of the US flag is not banned in the UK...

    This is the most politically illiterate thing I've ever read. I could write an entire treatise about how the 150 or so words you've written positively drip with wilful stupidity, but here's an executive summary:

    1) Closing the borders and scrapping all EU laws directly after the referendum - quite apart from being drastically illegal and undemocratic (but you're not too bothered about democracy, are you?) - would lead to the immediate collapse of the economy and most of the country as a whole. Imports and exports grinding to a halt. Food rotting in the ports. Planes unable to take off. Millions of people stranded inside and outside of the UK, unable to go home. Ad infinitum.

    2) Britain is not a great nation; Britain is, at best, a second-rank power which exercises disproportionate influence internationally because our imperial history has led to us being very well-represented on international bodies and institutions. Our economy is small, specialist, and reliant on financial capital flows and the service sector. We are a navel-gazing, parochial and insular nation with a massively over-inflated sense of our global importance and capability. The sooner people like you learn this, the better.

    Get over your juvenile imperial w**k fantasy and pick up a book. Your ignorance is stinking the place out.

    Edit - for a bit of context, I voted remain with a peg on my nose. Not sure how I'd vote if the question was posed again. So if you're thinking about pulling out the usual right-wing pig squeals of 'remoaner' and 'liberal idiot', you can think again.

    By the way, I'm sure you know this, but the whole 'subversive thoughts' and 'unsavoury political tendencies' spiel makes you sound like a fascist, in the truest sense of the word. Think you might want to clarify your political leanings.

    Are you seriously comparing the EU to ISIS? How is anyone this stupid, honestly. Please tell me this entire thread is you trolling.
    No I'm not saying the EU is as bad as ISIS but it's not good either.
    EU is an unsavory organisation that has influenced the British people as an oppressive ruling power. British people voted to leave. So going against the will of a nation is expression of unsavoury and disrupted thoughts. Schools for instance need to educate pupils on clearer thinking, and teachers need to be better observed to ensure they are not influencing pupils with inappropriate, disruptive thoughts. That's partly to blame why many young people oppose Brexit, because they've been badly educated and those teachers responsible need retraining.

    If you're interested in 'oppressive ruling powers', have a look at the Mau Mau uprising or the famines in British India.

    Also, you're advocating compulsory political re-education - nice. Not sure if your viewpoints are intentionally filthy or just completely incoherent. I could drive a bus through the holes in your logic.

    I agree. It was my old school that displays the EU flag in the corridor as it has done for several years before I left.

    The reason why there are some young people who oppose Brexit is because they have been badly taught at school by teachers expressing anti-British pro-EU thoughts. These thoughts are unsavoury and disrupted thoughts. These thoughts are why there is opposition to Brexit, and these disrupted thoughts are what could stop Britain becoming a great powerful nation.
    Teachers need to be better monitored and head teachers held wholly responsible for the actions of their teachers and TAs under them. Why my old school still displays an EU flag is beyond me. The headteacher should be investigated and retired out of education. After all British people voted to leave the EU.

    Britain can only succeed as a nation if we know who we are, what where we are, and where we are going.

    It's not really compulsory political re-education, it's simply educating teachers etc to have cleaner thoughts for example on inset days. Failing to comply would simply mean suspension and counselling of that teacher. I'm not advocating jailing them! If they decide teaching isn't fir them then there are plenty of other careers.

    Britain voted to leave Europe and become a great nation again, and we can become that. However if influential people (such as teachers, politicians the media etc) express unsavoury political thoughts against our freedom they are in danger of wrecking everything and all we've achieved since June 2016. Britain could become a basket case, our economy collapse, infrastructure fall apart etc. We could be a corpse of a nation still under EU influence.
    Only the will of all the people can stop this by following the progress of total independence to the end.

    We have achieved this in history, we eventually defeated the Roman Empire in the first millennium and King Henry VIII successfully disconnected Britain from the religious influence of the Catholic Church.

    I really don’t think you need to be saying we have voted leave to be a great nation again.

    People voted leave for a myriad of reasons and being a great nation once again isn’t high on that list

    You said they should be "banned from working with miners" for 5 years. I'm not sure how many headteachers want to work with mineral extractors but why restrict them?
