THE FLAG

I was doing the school run this morning and as we crossed the lights a child observed that a cheap England flag that was wedged behind the traffic light button was not there and he said “probably blown away daddy” and his dad replied (loudly) “OR SOMEONE HAS TAKEN IT DOWN, THERE’S A LOT OF DISRESPECT AROUND FOR THE FLAG AT THE MINUTE”

I think he wanted some sort of reaction but everyone just kept their heads down.
