Display The Flag Or Else...

From the Mail:

Brussels has fined Britain more than £150million for failing to display the EU flag on a string of projects part-funded by Europe.

Several schemes were also penalised for failing to use the flag on their letterheads.

The fines relate to £3.8billion given to the UK by the European Regional Development Fund over a seven-year period.

But don't worry the Coalition's on the case:

Communities Secretary Eric Pickles condemned the ‘over-bureaucratic rules’ surrounding ERDF money.

He said he would be pressing the European Commission to cut back on ‘needless bureaucracy’.

That's ok then.
