A bonfire in Leeds has left people furious after it appeared to burn a Union Flag as part of the display. The UK flag was attached to the top of a mast stuck in the wood pile at the Thorner Bonfire and Fireworks Festival on Saturday, November 3. ‘They had the flag on the top, with two Guy Fawkes underneath.

"Organisers of the event have since explained their decision to burn the Union Flag, also known as a Union Jack when flown at sea, by stating that it was damaged"
"A spokesperson said: ‘[The fall out] has all been dealt with. ‘The Union Jack was damaged and it is perfectly suitable to burn a damaged Union Jack."
"According to The Flag Institute, any flag that is no longer suitable for use should be ‘destroyed in a dignified way’. The site continues that this includes ‘burning, tearing or cutting [it] into strips that no longer resemble the original flag’.
Well thanks for nothing to "The Flag Institute" who have now given Islamicists, Scottish Nationalists, the IRA, Communists etc an excuse to burn a "damaged" Union flag (damaged/ripped in private before they burn it) ......
As for Theresa May - she latched onto the burning of an effigy of Grenfell Towers (a private video posted on social media), yet so far has said nothing about the burning of our NATIONAL FLAG at a PUBLIC Bonfire and Fireworks Festival......
