    What about Pizza Hut and Subway?
    ...my point exactly. If too many protest parties enter the ballot (not just the hypothetical KFC, Pizza Hut and Subway we were talking about), you are going to have too many conflicting opinions about who or what should be banned, to the point where Schrodinger's Election (i.e. leading to banning stuff, yet not actually banning said stuff at the same time) looks like a half-possibility.

    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.
    Errr....

    I was going to comment but I don’t think I have the words to do so.

    In answer to your question, no it shouldn’t be banned

    We've left the EU, not waged an all-out war with them...

    No it isn’t. We’ve barely started negotiations and we don’t know what the final terms will be.

    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.

    But we are going to leave and if the negotiations haven’t move to trade by the new year there is no negotiations

    No, but organisations that do should be boycotted.

    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.

    You do realise that northern Crimea is still administered by Ukraine, and that Russia merely illegally annexed the southern region just to hold a pointless rubber stamp referendum that literally no country (bar a couple smaller ones) actually recognised. What sort of equivalence is that?

    Russia took over Eastern Europe and east Germany after WWII, would you also say it was alright for them to do that?

    And what do you mean by great nation? You mean when we had colonies in Africa and Asia? Have a look at how our economy has grown since we joined the EU, because I know that you’re now outright lying and resorting to laughable nostalgia and fairy tail stories to try and fool anyone into thinking we would be better off out of the EU.

    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.
