Brown lied about flying the Union Flag

The prime minister's attempt to wrap himself in the Union flag
backfired last night after it emerged he had wrongly claimed to have
torn up rules limiting its use.

Gordon Brown said he was scrapping a ban on
government buildings flying the flag for more than 18 days a year,
telling GMTV “we've got rid of the rule and it will be up to public
offices to decide if they want to fly the flag”.

But it later emerged that there was no such rule and public offices could already fly the Union flag all year.

The
error was pointed out by the Flag Institute. Its spokesman, Michael
Faul, said: “The 18 days are the days where they are required to fly
the flag because of the importance of those days, such as the Queen's
official birthday.

“But there's no law or custom which prevents any person in the UK flying the Union flag on any other day.”

Chris
Grayling, the shadow work and pensions secretary, said: “Either the new
Prime Minister is embarking on a new era of spin or it's incompetence.” (source)

If Gordon Brown Lied about this, we WILL assume that he has lied about everything else. Until he can prove otherwise !!.

We demand honesty from now on, and we demand a referendum on the European Constitution Treaty.

Sign the No.10 Petition for a referendum now.

We also think that all English Town Halls should also be flying the English Flag.
