Shame­ful scene at an­nual proms

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - COMMENT -

Sir, - While watch­ing the last night at the proms on Sun­day night I was ap­palled at what I wit­nessed.

Peo­ple in the Al­bert Hall were wav­ing EU flags.

It was to­tally rank, crass and in­ap­pro­pri­ate be­hav­iour and in some part spoiled the spec­ta­cle for me.

The proms is a Bri­tish tra­di­tion and never was, and never will be, Euro­pean. Are there no depths to which the dis­grun­tled Re­main­ers will not sink?

While watch­ing I was aware the cam­eras were fo­cus­ing on these peo­ple nu­mer­ous times, this should have never been shown by the BBC, but it does not sur­prise me.

Aun­tie has al­ways shown bias in favour of

re­main, both be­fore and af­ter the ref­er­en­dum.

I hope lessons will be learned from this and the only flags that should be waved are Union Jacks.

The irony is the EU flags were waved vig­or­ously when Rule Britannia was played.

In­deed, Bri­tain will never be slaves.

Re­main­ers seem to for­get that if we had voted Re­main, Bri­tain would have re­mained metaphor­i­cally en­slaved to the EU. Gor­don Kennedy. 117 Simp­son Square, Perth.
