I really must get a Pakistan flag and stick that on my car. In retaliation
to the Asian taxi drivers round here with England flags on their cabs!
Or maybe a Union Jack to confuse people. I can see the looks of, 'You've got
THE WRONG FLAG ON YOUR CAR' now...
That would be funny and people would probably crash into you as
they're looking at the flag. It still probably doesn't justify
wasting all the fuel on the extra drag though does it?
Am I right in thinking that they're illegal? Isn't there a law
against having things hanging out of the windows?
No, law's don't get enforced anyway, so Police wouldn't stop people
for their flags. However, they could easily stop the cars for other
Law's are a waste of time, I had somebody go around a rounabout the
wrong way a few days ago and he tooted at me because I was there. He
doesn't understand that if he went around it the correct way (the
legal way) then there wouldn't have been a problem! It was only a
mini round about, but it was a raised one and he still should've gone
around it. I've learnt from the situation though, but tooting wasn't
really necessary. It was one of those 'stale-mate' situations, ie.
somebody at every point of the roundabout. I didn't want to stop
moving and went with somebody else, which improved the traffic flow.
Only if they impede vision in any way - as with furry dice. The current
crop of window mounted ones fly above the car's line of sight so should
present no problem. Mind you... When one comes off the car in front of you
on the motorway and plants itself squarely on your windscreen things could
I expect the police will get around to picking people up on it. They are
just not too quick on the uptake but as soon as one does it they'll all join
in. [ Name and registration number withheld ]
I really have been there. I really have seen it. It's just that they had
sold right out of T-shirts.
I drive a Toyota Avensis and fly the flag for England and I have to admit
that I feel like a scab for driving a foreign car whilst flying an English
flag (despite the fact that it's built in England). Indeed, how dare people
driving BMW's, Honda's, Fiat's and Renaults DARE fly the English flag! I'm
never going to order a pizza, chinese or indian curry ever again!
Furthermore, I'm not going to buy Reebok, Puma or Adidas goods! In fact I'm
going to go to my nearest British car dealer and buy a Morgan or Aston
Martin (despite the fact that either will no doubt have many foreign parts).
In fact I'm going to go search for my nearest Rover dealer and buy a Mini. A
BMW German Mini.
Better watch that shopping trolley Maxwell, it could be full of foreign
food, bit unpatriotic!
