Football branding overkill
Starbuck [13:12] Comments: 0 []

Driving around Northern England yesterday I quickly became inured to the proliferation of St George's Crosses plastered across every pub frontage or hanging from the windows of fanatics' homes. Indeed, Derbyshire, Cheshire and the High Peak were awash with red and white flutterings. And fair enough I say, except that they seemed to have attracted in denizens of the Paleolithic era, judging from the pub outspill, whose tolerance for alcohol must be genetically lower than that of Homo Sapiens Sapiens.

Aside from that, all good fun.

However, if I was selling a house in the area through Bridgfords estate agents I'd be mightily narked at my existing common-or-garden "For Sale" sign having been replaced with a garish St George Cross "For Sale" board (with "Come on England" writ large across the flag). Horrible and inappropriate. THEY'RE ESTATE AGENTS, FOR FUCKS SAKE!

And as for the buyers, surely this could only have a negative overall effect - its not as if a house is a quick impulse buy, after all...
