Government buildings ordered to fly Union flag every day as Tories stride into blatant fascism

Flag-shagger: Boris Johnson’s insistence on having a Union flag behind him whenever he is seen on TV, and his government’s demand that government buildings fly that flag at all times, indicates an alignment with “powerful and continuing nationalism” of the kind promoted by organisations like the BNP and Britain First: fascists all.

All UK government buildings have been ordered to fly the Union flag every day in the Johnson government’s most blatant display of fascist principles yet.

The first characteristic of fascism, according to Laurence W Britt’s famous 14-point list, is “powerful and continuing nationalism”.

This is most strongly evidenced by the use of flags. You see it in the behaviour of far-right extremists like the BNP, Britain First and so on, whose insistence on adopting the Union flag for themselves has dragged it into disrepute.

Johnson may claim that he’s taking it back but in fact he is merely aligning his government with those other fascists.

    Fascist tories obsessed with their flags – how convenient worrying about a flag instead of focusing on containing and eliminating the coronavirus pandemic!

    What next fascist tory boys? Oh yes you’ve already instigated demand that schools teach British history with particular emphasis on British Empire and little england – garden of eden because these lies are fascist tory truths!

    Fascists such as BNP and Britain First must be delighted they’ve finally achieved their goal – a fascist one party state!

    This is exactly the tactic suggested by Boris’ failed ‘Union Unit’ in order to ‘Love Bomb’ the Scots prior to the Scottish Parliamentary elections. This is being done in tandem with MASSIVE amounts of government advertising on social media (eg Facebook) This is DESPITE this being the official campaign period for those elections. This is blatant abuse of power to use taxpayers money to promote political aims.

    However, will having Union Jacks and the Tories advertising how well they’ve done for Scotland (which they haven’t – Holyrood spends much of its funds offsetting much of Tory policy) really make Scots love Boris and suddenly decide they don’t want Independence? Maybe not..
