The comments about The University of Warwick banning flags on your weblog are wrong
Please tell your posters that they should not believe all you read in the newspapers. The Daily Mail (A UK newspaper which started this story) for instance could not even get my name right! -the University is actually actively encouraging students to put out their flags during the world cup and their are many university posters around the campus saying this. All we asked was that they wait until the world cup starts, which of course it has now begun the England team are now on site, and to take them down when the world cup is over. Out of our 18,000 students only 6 refused to wait and refused to take their flags and bunting down until the World cup campaign had started which of course it has now with England arriving in Korea. IF those 6 want to be unco-oparative that's sad but fine - we are leaving them to
As for non externally visible flags they can have them up in their rooms whenever they like - there have never been restrictions on this. We restrict external flags to special occasions such as Royal events etc.
The University has no problem with UK flags - if you look at the University's home page www.warwick.ac.uk You will even see a link to the world cup stuff and a St George's cross and a history of the flag so we clearly do not believe in that politically correct nonsense about the flags upsetting other nationalities or being racist.
