Eleanor Jackson, English councillor, ashamed of England's flag

Meet Eleanor Jackson, a university lecturer, and a member of not one, but two councils. She sits on Bath and North-East Somerset Council as well as Radstock Town Council. In the latter role she announced to the assembled body that Radstock should not buy an English flag to fly over the small town  Her reasons were fairly straightforward: “My big problem is that it is offensive to some Muslims, but even more so that it has been hijacked by the far right. My thoughts are we ought to drop it for 20 years."  

Now, the fact that there are exactly 16 Muslims in Radstock is neither here nor there, and why the press is running around interviewing them is anyone's guess. What is important is that this is England's flag and an English councillor is ashamed of it.

This woman is a Labour councillor but that is not important, either. What she represents is not a particular party, but a particular middle class mindset. People with this mindset are riddled with self-loathing and filled with a desire to abase themselves as some weird act of penance for the perceived wrongs of their fathers. They are also filled with hatred for the drink beer, shag women, hate the boss British working men, whom they dismiss, sotto voce,  as chavs.

Come the next election I hope that a fine representative of Chavdom stands in this harridan's seat and takes it.
