Best wishes Eddie …

23 08 2009

Well, Eddie Izzard is in Northern Ireland for the latest stage of his ludicrous Comic Relief marathon of marathons.

It seems that wherever he runs he carries the regional flag with him. Eddie’s clearly smarter than the average comedian and understands NI better than most. He knows that whatever established fleg he selects for Northern Ireland would allow *them’uns / *thos’uns’ (*delete as appropriate) to feign offence.

So Eddie has decided to create his own NI flag – this is how he describes it on twitter:

This is my flag for N. Ireland. The green of the N. Ireland football shirt and the white dove of peace

Just so. But I do wonder if there isn’t enough here for some muppet to indulge in some flegophobia.

No doubt the Nolan Show will have Eddie on tomorrow morning. Can a simple charidee run provoke upset? Tune in tomorrow after 9 for the biggest show in the country!
