I don't think the Butcher's Apron looks good in any colour. Evil or Very Mad

Maybe it would have less contoversial just to have flown the old 'Pistols one with the Queen's face in the middle and the safety-pin through her nose !!

Union Jack, no thanks. Not an acceptable symbol in any colours, except maybe the Basque ones.

SNP FACE MORE FLAK OVER FLAG ATTACKS
Jan 21 2006

THE SNP came under fresh attack yesterday over a press release calling the Union Flag "the butcher's apron" and a "tarnished global image".

Glasgow MSP Sandra White disowned the comments sent out in her name earlier this week.

She claimed it had been put out by mistake by an "over-enthusiastic" researcher

But yesterday, the researcher at the centre of the row, Mark Hirst, released a private email suggesting White had approved much of the controversial statement

The email, from White to Hirst, said "press release good until last two paras".

It asked Hirst to delete the bottom part of the statement, which linked the Union Flag with Boer War concentration camps and attacks on civilians in the Iraq war.

But the email suggests White did approve claims that "most Scots" referred to the Union Flag as the "butcher's apron" and that it was a "tarnished global image".

The comments caused a storm of protest from Labour and Tory MSPs.

Hirst resigned as White's researcher on Thursday, though' he will continue working for SNP MSP Christine Grahame

He said he had published the private email "as I believe my professional integrity is being undermined".

 Random Information. 
 The Cornish Rebellion of 1497 was a popular uprising by the people of Cornwall in the far south west of Britain. Its primary cause was the raising of war taxes by King Henry VII on the impoverished Cornish for a campaign against Scotland, motivated by brief border skirmishes that were inspired by Perkin Warbeck's pretence to the English throne. Tin miners were angered as the scale of the taxes violated previous rights granted by Edward I of England to the Cornish Stannary Parliament which exempted Cornwall from all taxes of 10ths or 15ths of income. The Cornish had little sympathy for English wars against Scotland, considering that most Cornish were not English speakers at that time.
