But everyone knows the real reason: the BBC loathes Brexit and it loathes Brexiteers even more.
But that’s because you had to pay for the Union flags whereas the EU flags were being handed out free by an organisation called the EU Flags Proms Team.
It claims to have handed out 50,000 EU flags during the Proms season.
The Last Night of the Proms, of course, is traditionally the most joyously patriotic event in the English summer season, featuring much waving of Union flags and traditional performances perhaps the three most quintessentially British classics: ‘Rule Britannia’; ‘Land of Hope And Glory’ (from Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance No.1) and Parry’s setting of William Blake’s Jerusalem.
BBC classical drama, for example, used to be the best in the world.
