    Police chiefs have come under fire today for flying the rainbow flag for lesbians, gays and bisexuals outside its police stations - when they are forbidden to display the Union Jack.

    The multi-coloured 'Freedom' flag adopted by the gay pride movement in the 1970's is now flying at Suffolk Police's Ipswich HQ and its stations at Bury St Edmunds and Lowestoft.

    The flags - which include the force's badge - are to mark lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history month.

    Why are they forbidden to display the Union Jack?

    A little further down in the same post we find:

    "'It's outrageous that the Union Jack can't be flown on days such as the Queen's Birthday and that the cross of St George is considered unworthy of being flown when appropriate.'

    No thanks: Police stations are not allowed, under force policy, to fly the Union Jack or the Cross of St George

    But Suffolk's Chief Constable Simon Ash, who personally ran up the rainbow flag at the force's HQ at Martlesham said: 'The flag signifies pride and inclusivity.

    'We must continue to recognise and embrace differences while ensuring we provide a policing service to the people of the county who respect their differences.

    'The flags send out the message that we will not accept crime motivated by hate and prejudice and will continue to champion equal opportunities.

    'We have a commitment to tackle hate crimes and we want the message to be clear to victims and offenders that offences involving disability, race, religion and belief, sexual orientation or transgender will not be tolerated.

    'We are a force that values and embraces diversity among our own workforce and among the people we serve. I want this to be an organisation where everyone feels comfortable at work and is treated fairly.'

    But the flags have prompted politically-incorrect comments from some rank and file officers.
    One said: 'I thought it marked Caribbean Week so I was thinking of coming to work in a grass skirt.'


    "Pure and utter PC piffle !"

    No kidding. The Union Jack contains the crosses of St. George, St. Andrew and St Patrick. It's about the union of three nations. How is that not inclusive?
