What is a neutral working environment?

Shorts recently banned the display of a poster relating to the World Cup as it contained an England flag in order to maintain a neutral working environment. However, in the latest edition of its in-house magazine it has a feature on one of its managers who plays in the Antrim Hurling Team and is a member of the Patrick Sarsfield GAA club. Jim Wells has highlighted this as a hypocritical approach by Shorts and rejects the notion the GAA is simply a sporting organisation. He points out the Patrick Sarsfield GAA club recently held a 1981 Hunger Strike Commemorative Tournament.
