Well, well, at last we have got our Union Jack flying freely again (LET, April 17) but what a crying shame that it took a war to do it.

I have campaigned since this controversy began that our flag should be flown freely on every government building, big businesses and hotels and in our gardens.

I just hope that when this war is over we will leave our flag flying all the time and not just on special occasions.
