Are you flying the flag for England? The owner of this house in Penhill certainly is...

This Is Wiltshire: Graham Dunn's Penhill Drive home is adorned with England flags Graham Dunn's Penhill Drive home is adorned with England flags

THE World Cup has arrived and Graham Dunn has firmly nailed his colours to the mast.

The Penhill Drive resident has plastered his home with more than a dozen flags of St George as he gets behind England ahead of their opening group game against Italy tomorrow night.

Graham is not alone in flying the flag during the tournament. If you've made an effort to decorate your home, car or self, we want your pictures. Email them to webteam@swindonadvertiser.co.uk.

Oh please do not encourage this sort of behavior.

A single flag on your home or car is OK but this level of decoration sparks of fanaticism.

Yes, this is doing me no good at all. Rugby at 0800 and football at 2300. Not to mention the cricket and the hockey world cup. These circumstances are forcing me to be lazy and watch the box, when there are so many other things I should be doing.

A patriotic display would make me feel proud to be English but this makes me a bit ashamed, so I my opinion it is too much.

'full of comments by bigots and idiots who know nothing'??????????? I thought that most of the comments were light-hearted and should have been taken in good spirit. I'll just assume you've had a bad day grumpy.

dazzastfc are you his son?

All talk of 'go round his house and say it to his face' really does give one the impression of someone with an IQ of a door knob, I have no problem personally with someone flying the flag and being patriotic, however, when someone plasters their house with more flags than England will play games, quite frankly it does look chavy.

I also find the same type tend to illuminate their houses at Christmas and smother themselves in tattoos, they may well be very nice people, just not the sort I'd socialise with or want living next door to me, so before you start threatening every dog and his wife, they'll always be someone somewhere prepared to help you sleep ;-D
