Have grassroots Conservatives given up on the Union?

This insalubrious watering hole, just across the road from where I am writing this, is King's Lynn Conservative Club.

Note the flag that is being flown outside. Until a very few years ago it would have been unthinkable for it to have flown anything but the Union Jack.

Is this a sign that the average Conservative member, in this part of Norfolk at least, no longer feels much affection for the union?

And, by the way, it is perfectly in order to call it the Union Jack.

We Scottish tories would perform better in the polls up here if we where rid of you lot.

Good riddens would be my reaction to ending our alliance with you home counties nutters!

Long live Heathite Fabianism (i.e. Scottish toryism)- down with thatcherite nutterdom of the home counties!
