Southwark is in danger of becoming a laughing stock throughout the world due to some petty official ordering Jubilee bunting to be removed from private houses because it may "offend" ethnic minorities.
I am a so called ethnic minority and what offends me most is daft people trying to dictate what might offend me.
I can think of no better way for usto celebrate the Queen's Jubilee that for as many homes as possible to put up whatever cheerful bunting or other flags as the house occupant can afford without any interfearence from the silly council officials. The Golden Jubilee only comes around once in a lifetime so enjoy ...... God Save the Queen.
