por qué?

The Department of Education "Children, Schools and Families" has taken to flying the EU flag over its Westminster HQ.

We can't think of any other Government deparments who do this every day, and we were wondering what had prompted this burst of europatriotic fervour.

Is Ed Balls trying to make up for his sins against European integration? (have a look at his pamphlet on "euro-monetarism" to get an idea of what he used to say)

Or is it just because the department of "Children, Schools and Families" doesn't have to deal with Brussels as much as some others do? Does dealing with Brussels on a regular basis make you less keen on it?

Answers on a postcard.

OMG how much longer do we have to put up with this europe crap. GET US OUT OF EUROPE AND START BEING ENGLAND AGAIN. We are English and should be proud of it.

It is a point of extreme shame that this is considered unusual - all governmental buildings should fly the EU flag alongside the UK flag. We are a member state, and should be proud of that fact.

Every time I walk past Bristol City Council building and see three flags fluttering above the building, EU, UK and Bristol, I smile - it's as it should be.

(To Anonymous above: It's really very sad that you are so unsubtle as to only have a single identity. You can be - and likely really do consider yourself - multiple things at the same time. I'm Bristolian, English, British, and European - none of these exclude any of the others, and each of them complements each others, and makes up part of me.)
