    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 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...
    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

    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.
    You still need to tell us more about why headteachers need to banned from working with mineral extractors.

    I never said that. They can work with anyone from any industry they want to.

    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?

    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.
    No... Showing defiance to Brexit and the will of "All British people"? Have you already forgotten that the vote was close to a 50/50, with leave *just* on top? So not only did you just lie through your teeth for your own gain, you just ignored around 30 million's "treacherous" views because they voted against something you're in favour of.

    You're also forgetting we are still a part of the EU until the negotiations end in 1 and a half years time.

    Grow up and realise there are different views to yours. We are not at war with the EU, and we are still a part of Europe and hopefully will get some kind of stable deal with the EU to keep ties, so no it is far from treason.

    So no, it isn't and shouldn't be a crime to fly a EU flag. Since half the country was against leaving, why should you suddenly decide they aren't allowed a voice? It's not treason (even that claim was far-fetched) and far from it. It's like a French tourist coming to the UK owning a cup with the French flag on. Who cares. You wouldn't flip out then so don't now. People are entitled to their own views.

    Also in terms of children, it's actually healthy for them to be taught everything, including what we are leaving (EU). It's a school.

    Wow. Young people saw the benefits and disadvantages of the EU and wasn't corrupted by fear mongering and apparently they're uneducated?? Damn I didn't think the single-minded infection spread so far through the UK.

    So young people realised the benefits of the EU alongside the disadvantages and realised we could potentially keep the benefits and hope for the UK to help reform the EU to make it better, and suddenly it means all young people were uneducated. Wow, you know how to disgrace multiple whole generations who would one day be running the country.

    Maybe it's just like how most young people voted against Conservatives because we saw through their lies and are sick of the things they have pulled the last 4 years. Or maybe we're all just incredibly dumb because we don't align with your shallow-minded views? If the UK became shallow-minded because all young people followed your footsteps, the UK would soon end up a disaster.

    Also, schools don't even try to influence young people in what they should vote for. During the EU, a very small minority of teachers were found to be doing that and was dealt with to stop it. This does not mean that all schools were doing that. If that was the case, if schools/colleges etc were teaching biased political views, the government would do something.
    Maybe... Just maybe.. Young people are actually more in touch with politics because of the means we have available to us to keep up to date. Believe it or not, majority of us aren't the stereotype "Taking drugs, alcohol and couldn't care about the world" and we actually care about what happens to our country. Baring in mind the EU vote would effect us the most as we have to live through the effects of it and fix any issues that are left for us from it.

    Maybe you should be re-educated, just a thought

    That's Momentum's political philosophy, isn't it? It's hard to put this in kind terms but you (and Momentum) display exactly the same mindset as that of any tyrant that ever walked on this earth, the totalitarian approach you guys put to everything is impossible to exceed. You come here often with the most ridiculous suggestions of things to ban, in this thread alone we've moved from banning flags to God knows what by now. Ban, ban, ban. If there is such thing as cultural Marxism... this is it.

    You talk of programming teachers to channel your views and shape the minds of the young, as if nobody else mattered in this world and you're God's envoy on a planet populated by units. All that in the name of the people! For God's sake man,wake up. They've done a great job on you...

    We have free speech here believe it or not. People with pro-eu beliefs shouldn't be silenced just because you don't support these opinions.
    I agree wholeheartedly. One of my bitterest complaints against the EU is the EU Commission on Human Rights. Seriously, having the human right to get your head kicked in by the police because you question the morality of the majority, territorial integrity(A' la Catalonia) or really anything deemed counter to a harmonious EU.

    I would say that Article 10 of the EU Commission on Human Rights gutting free speech that places like France and the UK spent centuries campaigning for is the worst thing if it weren't that almost every other article is bad as well.

    Although I doubt ECHR will be able to do anything considering most countries in Europe don't really want to talk about the Catalonian crisis or they just don't support the movement in the first place since they have similar problems to the one which Spain has.

    E.g, many Hungarians near Cluj Napoca (in Romania) want an autonomous region and I believe many Italian provinces are also automonous.

    Believe me, the EU is far from a perfect organisation. If anything, I would like it to be reformed.
