Council demands Union Flag bunting is removed

GBNews published this video item, entitled “Council demands Union Flag bunting is removed” – below is their description.

North Tyneside Council has been criticised after it demanded Tory councillors took down Union Jack bunting hanging in the party’s Group Room.

Councillor Sean Brockbank the leader of North Tyneside Conservatives said: “The Union Flag is part of our national identity and is indeed flown in government buildings up and down the country – it is astonishing that this is not allowed in North Tyneside.

Bryn Roberts, head of Law and Governance at North Tyneside Council, allegedly said the flags were “not appropriate” and “overtly political” in a message sent to councillor Sean Brockbank, leader of North Tyneside Conservatives.
