You mean the mediterranean soldier who never had anything to do with Britain? The patron saint of half a dozen countries?

Surely it reinforces disadvantage and inequality? We should take to the streets, in front of television cameras preferably, and beat ourselves over our past mis-treatment of dragons.

Well that delightfully moronic cartoon illustrates the problem. The good folk of Scotland, Ireland and Wales have not felt the need to let their respective national symbology be hijacked by neanderthals, racists and lunatics. Unless you are more careful which particular branch of the Europe's new Nazis are wearing your flag, you might in fact have people conflate that particular symbol with the stench of extremism. How very sad.
