KHAN’S LONDON: Union Jack BANNED And Branded ‘Offensive’
Greenwich Council officials have ordered Chris Kanizi, a local chip shop owner, to take down a Union Jack he had emblazoned on the side of his shop. They claimed its ‘excessive size’ was not in keeping with its location with what is a 19th-century conservation area. Letters of complaint also sent to the council said the Union Flag can be seen as offensive to some and not in keeping with the overall area as it ‘lowers the tone’.
However, the local community has rallied behind him, with more than 3,300 signing petitions calling for the sign to stay and Mick Delap of Ashburnham Triangle Association supports the Golden Chippy and said the council’s definition of heritage was ‘narrow and out of touch.’
“Chris has contributed greatly to the locality and put a lot of work into building up the area. I understand the sign is not to everyone’s taste, but fish and chip shops are a part of British culture.”
British culture, the thing that is least welcome in Mr Khan’s London…….
