We wouldn’t want the powers that be a Barlborough Parish Council to mislead you
again, after all most of them are republicans, just like our local MP Mr Skinner. It was noticed today that they have hung at least one Union Flag upside down on the village green. We assume they are there for the latent attempt to join in with the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
This, as we sure most will know, means S.O.S. or even worse, it can be interpreted as an insult to the sovereign — and theoretically is still punishable under English and Welsh common law.
The correct way is as the picture shows with the broad white portion of the cross of St Andrew at the top.
With all the anti royalists on the Parish Council may be it is meant as an insult !
