“But hang on. Lots of countries have dodgy histories.”
Jeremy continued his impassioned defence, going on to point out Britain’s historic successes.
He continued: “I’m not saying British history is a fairytale full of nothing but pink unicorns and goodness. We had our moments, for sure.
“The Union Jack should be a symbol, then, that reminds us of all this and makes us feel warm and gooey inside when we see one.”
Jeremy’s defence comes after it was announced on Friday how government buildings in England, Wales and Scotland will fly the union flag every day.
The new policy was brought in by the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport department.
