Scots told to 'get a grip' amid campaign to remove Union Jack – 'It can be flown ANYWHERE'

Their anger was sparked after the nationalist Airdrie for Independence group demanded the UK’s national flag be removed and replaced with the Scottish Saltire. The flagpole is in West End Park, North Lanarkshire and next to the town’s war memorial.

Until around a fortnight ago it flew the Saltire – but this was replaced with the Union flag after requests from ex-service personnel, veterans and their families, it has been claimed.

Voluntary group Friends of West End Park maintains both sites, which are owned by North Lanarkshire Council (NLC).

When challenged by independence activist Jim Cassidy, he claimed that they replied in a letter that following the requests “they felt it would be right that we gave consideration to a British flag”.

In a public Facebook rant, he also claimed that “year-round poppy displays” were part of a British nationalist effort to promote the Union.

The rational explanation wasn’t enough for the independence group who are reportedly planning to hold a demonstration next to the flag which Mr Cassidy claimed has “political and sectarian connotations”.

News of the ludicrous protest drew a predictable response from many Brits – who vocally questioned why more respect wasn’t being shown to the country’s war dead.

One raged: “Get a grip and show some respect for the fallen who have given their tomorrow for your today.”

Another wrote: “Does this silly minority believe in banning all displays of the Union Flag in Scotland?

“If so, they would get short shrift from the battalions of the Royal Regiment of Scotland both serving and former soldiers.

“The Regiment’s Queen’s Colour consists of the Great Union with the regimental crest in the centre and bears 32 principal battle honours from 1914 onwards.

“Pre-1914 principal battle honours are borne on the Regimental Colour. I came to the conclusion that silly people should be humoured but not indulged.”

And a third said: “The Union (flag) is allowed to be flown anywhere in the Union.

“As Scotland is still part of the Union it does not need permission from anti Union haters.

“As for complaining about poppies – this is a gross insult to those who have fought for the UK to remain free.

“Some sacrificed their lives for these ungrateful people.”

Another questioned the logic behind their argument.

They wrote: “The Saltire is part of the Union flag, which means that it is flown wherever the Union flag is flown.

“The Nats need to take a good look at themselves, and then try to get some education.”

The Friends of West End Park have yet to comment publicly on the row.

But in a leaked letter seen by The National, they said it was apolitical and, “very saddened and surprised” that their upgrade to the flagpole was “somehow associated to a political/national cause”.

Mr Cassidy, who described himself as a former British serviceman, wrote on Facebook: “The British Nationalist community does have a particular focus on a few key areas, such as the flying of the British flag, year-round poppy displays and veterans’ causes, so the decision to remove the Saltire and replace it with the British must be viewed in that context.”

A spokesperson for the council said: “The Friends of West End and Centenary Park is a voluntary community organisation run by an independent committee who do a fantastic job looking after the park for the benefit of the local people and visitors.

“Flying the Saltire or Union Flag is at the discretion of the committee.”

Express.co.uk has contacted the Friends of West End Park for comment.
