The Non-English Olympic Team

The BBC article on the Team GB Olympic kit entertains your humble correspondent. People I respect have been writing that The Powers That Be are hostile to England and the English for some time. I suspect that Stella McCartney's design may be discussed for far longer than any other kit in living memory.

What they've done is re-colour the Union Flag to remove the symbol for England. That's not right. Combined with the way that the Olympic team is full of hired guns from all over the world, I expect sharper wits than mine to latch onto this symbolic faux-pas.
