Don’t Wear a Tiepin

According to the Yorkshire Post and BBC News Wakefield Prison Officers have been told not to wear St. George Cross tie-pins bought in support of a cancer charity for fear they may be misinterpreted as racist symbols. Ms Owers, Chief Inspector of prisons, has said “staff should not wear unauthorised tie-pins”. Well, if it is merely the wearing of an unauthorised tie-pin that is the issue, why were the officers not told this? Why is the Saint Georges Cross aspect being highlighted? If you ask me, this is the racist element of the issue. English people being told they cannot advertise their loyalty to and love for their country even in support of a worthy charity.
