Default Gordon Brown is in distress! :D



Thats right, Gordon Brown is officially in distress (well, either he is of the country)

Now, I know we brits can be a tad anal when it comes to the smaller matters like this, but seriously? What a phail

Edit for our non native people: The Union Jack has thicker white bars, that are always displayed a certain way. Showing it upside down was a hidden way that a ship could indicate it was in distress, and in this instance (the china meeting) the Union Jack was being displayed incorrectly, showing "distress"


[hr]

Oh, and this is in the 'clave because its a huge laugh, so lets not have serious politiking

Is your next complaint going to be that the little novelty flag given to Gordon Brown by his personal aides was made in China?

Trying to find the first complaint, to tell the truth : lighten up, have a laugh. Politics hasn't got to be serious all the time :

Don't mind me. I'm just feeling left out because you've got a Prime Minister that as far as I can tell is internationally irrelevant. At least Tony Blair was internationally recognizable, all Gordon Brown is to me is just some guy in a suit who took over after Blair left office.

The upside down union flag, did mean "I am in Distress" but for a very specific reason. I have either been boarded and captured by another ship or my ship has been taken by mutineers.

The flag was flipped because its not hugely noticeable and most often when they were taken they were kept under the old flag to disguise the fact for as long as possible.

So...

This looks like Putin and Obama have to rescue Gordon Brown from the Chinese?

Well now there's something I don't get about your picture and explanation Rafe.

I'm looking at the flag, and I see that there are some thicker diagonal white lines. But if you were to turn that flag upside down, it would look the same. So am I looking at the wrong lines or something?
