Flag stolen in Cornwall

As Gordon Brown hoisted his flag of St George over 10 Downing Street yesterday and encouraged all government buildings to follow suit, one flag was being taken down in Cornwall.

A flag of St George was stolen from a meteorological station in Egue Gaberaic Way, Bude between 0900 and 1000 and Devon and Cornwall police have even issued a statement and appealed for witnesses to contact them. If this person is actually caught, s/he could be looking at a hefty fine and a thorough interrogation for his petty theft, if the stories are true about what Tony Leamon was told by police.

CPW are surprised that Brown didn’t follow the example from the private sector (as he is often keen to do), but then again, perhaps nobody told him that Cornwall is not England.
