English village refuses to surrender to France

The village of Swarland, Northumbria, will continue with plans to fly the British Union flag or the English St. George's flag on October 21st to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Lord Nelson's victory over Napoleon's navy at the Battle of Trafalgar.

Some have asked the parish council to scrap its plans out of concern that it would upset the French.

If the French didn't want to be upset, they shouldn't have lost at Trafalgar.
