NIGEL FARAGE has warned the Prime Minister about flying the St George’s Flag while England plays during the World Cup after Theresa May made the announcement in the House of Commons on Wednesday.
“And whilst I’m all for supporting our team, I’m all for flying our flag, I worry that image of the English flag flying above Number 10 will be on every election leaflet for Sinn Fein in Northern Ireland and for the SNP in Scotland.
“It plays directly into the hands of those who would like to break up the United Kingdom.
“I’m all for the flag, but I’m not sure Number 10 Downing Street is the appropriate place for it, regardless if it’s the men or the women.”
Speaking in the Commons, Mrs May told MPs: “Number 10 will be flying the England flag on the day of each of England's matches from now on.
