David Cameron urges Scots MPs to support England as he flies St George’s flag

Cameron is being a bit two-faced on this one. What about the rest of the year, you TWAT?

He is one of those people who only support England during a sporting event.

It makes you sick, this so-called leader of the UK, his parliament tries it’s best not to recognise England, until the team goes to South Africa for the world cup.

Cameron and your coalition parliament for once please do not be hypocritical and allow councils, businesses and other proud English folk to fly the flag all year round, and as the parliament buildings are in England the flag should be flown all year round, especially as the rest of the UK and their governing bodies fly their national flag.


DAVID Cameron yesterday announced that he would be flying the flag of St George over Downing Street for the World Cup and called on MPs wherever they come from in the UK to cheer on England.

With England the only team from the home nations in the World Cup in South Africa, Mr Cameron has made the unprecedented decision to exchange the flag of England for the Union Flag which normally flies over Downing Street.

Mr Cameron’s comments came during Prime Minister’s Questions after an appeal from a new Tory MP to get properly behind the team.

He was urged to show his support for the English team by Tory MP Nadhim Zahawi (Stratford-on-Avon), who said: “I ask you to do a great thing for the people of England and cut through the bureaucracy and nonsense and fly the flag of England over Downing Street for the duration of the World Cup.”

Mr Cameron replied: “There was some question that this was going to have a cost impact but I’ve managed to cut through that and I can say that at no additional cost to the taxpayer the flag of St George will fly above Downing Street during the World Cup.”

Then, pointedly looking up at the SNP members, he added: “For the purposes of this I’m looking at all the benches here and I’m sure that everyone in this House, no matter what part of the United Kingdom they come from, will be cheering ‘come on England’.”

But most SNP and Plaid Cymru MPs were shaking their heads vigorously, including Western Isles MP Angus MacNeil.

But he said the Prime Minister was right to fly the flag of St George over Downing Street.

“It’s nice to see they think they can do something without Scotland,” he added.

However, he insisted: “I don’t want to upset anybody from other nations over who will do well in the World Cup, whether that is England, France, Germany or any other countries involved”.

Ian Davidson, the MP for Glasgow South West who has just become the chairman of the Scottish affairs committee, was also diplomatic, claiming he did not mind who won because he would not be watching many games.

“As I am originally from the Borders I am more interested in rugby,” he said. “But I wish England well”.

The Prime Minister also failed to impress the Tartan Army. Hamish Husband, a spokesman for the Association of Tartan Army Clubs, said: “I think Mr Cameron is quite right to fly the flag of St George. I would hope that Gordon Brown would have done the same for Scotland when he was Prime Minister and I am sure nobody would have minded.

“But as far as supporting England goes, we all hope England have a good time in South Africa and lose every single game”.

Mr Cameron’s appeal to non-English MPs appeared to have failed to persuade politicians from north of the Border who were reluctant last night to support England.

In the House there has been some friendly rivalry about the competition, with shirts bearing the legend ABE (Anybody But England) preferred by MPs from the Celtic nation and a new SNP shirt (Scotland Not Present) worn by some English members.

  1. You know – I don’t think Cameron is asking the Scots to support England because we (the English) want to be loved – but to convince the sceptics that the Scottish are not a complete country of small minded petty xenophobics!

    It’s in their own intersest not in ours I suspect.

  2. Cameron’s an idiot and clearly knows nothing about football or the passion of the fans. First it’s an insult to ask Scots and Welshmen to support England, it’s not their country after all. Second he’s very naive if he thinks the English will give a damn whether they do or not.

    • Only doing it to get the English to like him and his coalition more, the man is a fool if he thinks this will make him look good to the English nation. Football is full of passion, and it is where many people who support various teams come together as one nation. maybe he is feeling left out again the posh idiot.
