Royal Mail BANS posties from flying England flags


Royal Mail has banned 100,000 posties from flying England flags during Euro 2020 - as patriotic postmen blasted bosses for their 'woke attitude.'

Royal Mail bosses did not deny posties' claims that mini St George's flags and stickers are not allowed on walking postmen and women's letter trolleys.

Delivery staff are furious and said the ban means they cannot show their pride in the Three Lions.

Royal Mail blamed safety reasons, stating it has a general policy in place at all times preventing drivers attaching items to vehicles in case they blow off and become 'hazards' to road users.

The organisation declined to confirm if staff could display flags inside depots.

The decision has been slammed by postal workers who have said the ban means they cannot show their support for England. 

A postman in south London said: 'We want to show a bit of patriotism, but the woke attitude means bosses won't let us fly flags now.

'We used to be allowed to put up flags, especially on vans.'

A Royal Mail van driver in south London said: 'The company says we can't show our support for England due to health and safety.

'Lots of us used to decorate vans with flags, or stickers making a St George's Cross.'

Another south London postie said: 'We used to enjoy putting up flags, but we're not allowed now, even on trolleys.'
