The Saltire is Banned!

Good one from my friend Jamie Hepburn MSP, who somehow managed to spot that the Olympic Committee in Beijing has ruled that the saltire may not be waved in support of Scottish athletes at these Olympic games. And before anyone accuses me or him of being parochial, he also pointed out that England, Wales and Northern Ireland will be banned from flying their flags too. Ridiculous isn't it? I have to admit I was wondering why on earth Jamie was doing reading the "house rules" of the Olympic Committee. Then I remember that he and Julie have just moved house and as yet, they've no TV aerial and no internet access. If that's how bad it gets, please never let my internet access be taken away!
