A Council plans to fly a flag for a gay festival — despite refusing to do so for the Queen’s birthday.
Bournemouth Council claimed they had no one to run up the Union Flag last Saturday.
But they agreed, when approached by homosexuals and lesbians, to put the Gay Pride flag on the town hall on July 8 — a SATURDAY.
The decision of the Lib Dem authority to put old queens before Our Queen angered locals.
Tory councillor David Clutterbuck said: “This is political correctness gone mad.”
The council claimed it would have breached etiquette had they left the Union Flag flying over the weekend — but flag specialists deny this.
Council chief exec Pam Donnellan said: “There was no snub intended — we were strictly following historical protocol.”
