The Red Arrows

Recommended Posts

The world-famous Red Arrows have been banned from appearing at the 2012 London Olympics because they are deemed 'too British'. Organisers of the event say that the Arrows military background might be 'offensive' to other countries taking part in the Games. The display team have performed at more than 4000 events worldwide, but the Department of Culture, Media and Sport have deemed the display team 'too militaristically British.'

Red Arrows pilots were said to be 'outraged', as they had hoped to put on a truly world class display for the Games, something which had never been seen before.

Being axed from a British-based event for being 'too British' is an insult - the Arrows are a symbol of Britain. The Red Arrows have been excellent ambassadors for British overseas trade, as they display their British-built Hawk aircraft all over the world.

The Arrows performed a short flypast in 2005 when the winning bid was announced, but their flypast at the Games was to have been truly spectacular. It is to be hoped that common sense prevails.

That is insane :unsure:

I've signed it. The government should be encouraging things that are british, just like other countries encourage and show things that are special and traditional to them - not shying away from it and banning stuff.

*rant over*

I absolutely cannot believe what I am reading, it is insane and makes my blood boil, I have been studying equality and diversity for many years as it is a big part of my job and this is not what equal opps is about!! :ffs: It should be about celebrating our differences and raising awareness of different cultures and this is borderline oppression of British people!! :no:

The Department of Culture, Media and Sport should be promoting our culture not diluting it.

Whenever have you seen the Red Arrows and thought "Gosh I bet they could bomb someone really accurately", its political correctness gone mad.

Whats the point of being British, Our government just wants a bunch of Euro clones...

Rant over
