Sir: In his letter (21 April) W. E. Brum advocated the wearing of a red rose by all Englishmen on St George's Day.

In view of the fact that this emblem has been hijacked by the Labour Party - an event which has led to the uprooting of my rose-bed - would it not be more appropriate to encourage the flying of a flag bearing the red cross of St George?

Yours faithfully,


Newcastle upon Tyne
