    What a hoot.
    I guess the Europa must have a tight telephone budget. I’m sure one telephone call could have produced as many Union flags as they wanted.

    Since comment #2 appeared on this thread, I’m guessing you have to bring a flag and FlashDublin is a flag seller.

  • I’m surprised they could not have borrowed a union jack from a loyal subject in that city. I wonder is belfast the city with the most union jacks in the world. i wonder was there ever a study done on the amount of flags in the north. From what I’ve seen, the unionist areas are far more into flag flying than the nationalist ones, but I’m willing to stand corrected. there seem to be more union jacks in Northern ireland than in Britain itself.

    Surely the whole point of this story is that O’Millionaire is clearly every bit as much of a triumphalist flag-waving moron as the Prods who slates for being… triumphalist flag-waving morons.
    I expect he was bitterly disappointed when the Europa shrugged its shoulders and told him to fly whatever he wanted off the pole as long as he paid for it himself – especially when they didn’t rise to the bait of him having “no union flag” and refusing to buy one.

    There would surely be more sales of Tricolours then Union Jacks considering only one community is buying the Union Jack, where as both communities buy the tricolour, one to raise it and one to burn it ?

    Last comment was a joke bye the way

  • joeCanuck

    It was quite witty too Kloot.

  • “There would surely be more sales of Tricolours then Union Jacks considering only one community is buying the Union Jack, where as both communities buy the tricolour, one to raise it and one to burn it ? ”

    but as we discussed here around the time of 12th July… don’t the British Gov fund a lot of the bonfires which do the burning….. so it’s just financial transfer from Westminster to BlueRedGhetto Belfast. Such Galbraithesque Gov spending doesn’t provide long term benefit but is a form of welfare.

    Farcical as is most in the ‘wee black north’. Good on Michael for highlighting the original humour.

    Are their ratings for nation flags. A top ten of the best looking flags, with awards for design, colour, etc

    Kloot

    The top 4 would have to be Holland, Russia, Serbia/Montenegro and Luxembourg, in that order – maybe Thailand in fourth place – then Costa Rica in 5th.

  • Ulster McNulty

    ..or is that Thailand in 6th, Costa Rica in 7th.

  • Kloot

    Hmm.. lot of similar colours in those flags.

    My personal favorite is spain. Duno why, but it just appeals to me.

    I especially like the part about the apprentice boys being the only ones up early in the morning. the only reason that those nutjobs are up early is to get an early start spreading fear and mistrust amongst their community.

    Shame on the Europa.

    Normally they keep these ‘blue-bag’ spides out of reception.

    If you want a say in what goes on at the hotel, get a room.

    Otherwise, walk on by. Nothing to do with you.

    (I bet he was was drunk and shouting)

  • MacAntSaior

    my room was paid for long ago

    ..er, weren’t the ABOD supposed to be the good loyal order because they hugged the “residents” ? More Shinner spinners needed to get the unreconstructed- most of whom I suspect couldn’t get into the Europa as dishwashers- to get back on message, and-like gerry- hug a Prod 9if you can catch one)
