News | Community

Mr Jackson was disappointed in a response from the Home Office, they outlined that they could not enforce the display of either the Union Flag, or a portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, at entry points to the UK.

In America, by presidential proclamation, the flag of the United States is one of the first things seen and is flown at every Customs Port of Entry which is continually open. Yet, in Britain, there is no such provision set out in law.

Stewart Jackson MP said: "The Union Flag is one of the most powerful and illustrious symbols of Britishness - of social and national unity - and I cannot fathom why the Home Office would not wish to display it with pride at entry points to the UK. "

"This is yet another example of political correctness and cumbersome bureaucracy undermining British identity."

"Following the success of the recent Royal Wedding and with the Olympics coming up, I believe we should relish in the symbols of our nation and our nation's history. The British Flag and our Sovereign act as a focus for our national identity and should welcome all those who are returning to, or visiting our country."

Stewart Jackson was elected in May 2005 to represent the Peterborough constituency in the House of Commons. To find out more about him, his views and activities, visit his website at www.stewartjackson.org.uk
