Who was it said ‘patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel?
Ever since a labour focus group established that we think more of our politicians if they are linked to the flag, we see Keir Starmer, and now prominent Tories all giving their TV interviews in front of a union flag. Just now it was James Cleverley on the 1.00pm BBC News.
I’m intensely irritated that it should be assumed I’ll be swayed by such a blatant piece of scenery, rather than what is being said. Yet more dumbing down. Grrrrr.
