Abingdon town council has voted against a motion to fly the rainbow flag from the town’s county hall for a Pride event.
By one vote. But that’s democracy for you. And it’s not like they didn’t have a good reason:
The council said the flag would set a “clear precedent” for other flags to be flown in the town, the BBC reported.
Quite! Their town, their rules.
Doesn’t stop the identity politics crowd having a massive hissy fit, though (does anything?):
An Oxford Pride spokesperson told Pink News: “It’s important to show the community that their town supports them regardless of sexuality and gender, unfortunately some of Abingdon town council don’t agree.“
“For the town council to refuse this emblem of inclusion and acceptance, indicates that there are some still in control who do not wish such virtues to be part of an English town.”
Because they didn’t fly a flag, they are all homophobes? Get over yourself!
