The kids school had a party thing going on yesterday for the jubilee and were told they could come dressed in red white and blue to represent the union flag.
When I picked the kids up from school I saw the little Polish kid I've mentioned before that knocks on my door all the time to play with kids and he was dressed in his Polish football kit for the party.
I didn't find it offensive on a personal level but I sort of thought it was in bad taste a little, maybe?
It could come across as his parents sticking up the middle finger to the UK and not wanting anything to do with the culture of the country they have moved to.
If I lived in another country and they were having a national holiday the last thing I would do is dress up as a Pearly King or Queen and wave around the St George Cross, sort of reminds me of the groups of young lads in English Airports waiting to take them off to Tenneriffe for a fortnight all dressed up in England shirts, I've always found that tasteless and ignorant.
There's also the point about some councils a few years ago banning people (if even that was true) from flying the St Georges Cross during the world cup because it could offend some of our ethnic minorities.
Now if UK citizens can't be patriotic and fly flags without getting grief because of immigrants then it's a sorry state of affairs.
Anyway, back to the Polish kid........if his parents aren't into the royal family (like me, I would never celebrate anything royal) it would have been better if they had just sent him into school wearing regular clothes rather than a Polish footy strip instead of making a statement out of him.
Anyway, given the origins of our Royal Family wouldn't a German football strip have been more appropriate? That would have enraged the Brits and the Poles . Win-win :Thumbs:
Not sure about it enraging the Poles, I saw that documentry some time back that Ross Kemp did about the Polish footy thugs and it seemed that their game has many right wing Nazi supporters involved.
That is indeed curious, but I very much doubt that the knuckle-dragging troglodytes in question represent the views of the average Polish person.
They were told they could wear red, white and blue. The kid perhaps misinterpreted why and just wanted to wear the footie kit as it's those colours.
Exactly. I remember similar things happening when I was at school and most of the kids just used it as an excuse to wear their favourite football kits.
