    It was windy, and the flag was plainly not fastened well.

    No conspiracy. No strings, no sylonoids, no remotes.

    Just bad luck.

    It was obviously very windy (hardly surprising in London - wind is our second most plentiful natural resource, after rain) and one flag either wasn`t fastened properly or the fastening broke. I`m sure the conspiracy nutjobs wouldn`t have been saying the same if it had happened to be, for example, the French flag.

    Also...two Russian flags? I think not. That`s not how it works.

    I am curious now though - how do they fasten the flags onto the pole? Are they just tied on?

    I do think that an investigation is in order, to find out what happened and why. It`s not a big deal, but a flag has symbolic meaning so it`s not entirely trivial either.

    I believe one was Russia and the other was Belarus. Belarus is basically an artificial ethnic state that will become Russian once again once Lukashenko is out of power. For all practical purposes, they`re the same country, Lukashenko is Russia`s bitch.

    As a veteran of the US Army, and having served multiple tours in Iraq, I will not rave about how wrong this is. In fact, if you have non-Americans raising our flag, you cannot expect quality work. British can`t brush their teeth, why would they be able to tie a flag up correctly? I kid, I have nothing against the British. Hell my favorite band, the Rolling Stones are British.

    OMG!! I JUST WATCHED THIS VIDEO AND TODAY IS SATURDAY AUGUST 11TH, 2012 AKA ONE MONTH PRIOR TO 9/11 AND THE LAST YEAR OF THE MAYAN CALENDAR - BEING AS THERE WAS NO YEAR ZERO IN THE `WESTERN` CALENDAR WE MUST SUBTRACT 1 (-1) FROM THE SETTING ON OUR BLENDER AND MINCE MINCE MINCE, NOT PUREE. HOLD THE PUREE AND MINCE BUTTON DOWN ANDN THINK OF THE BOY/GIRL YOU LIKE AND YOU WILL BE ON THE GRASSY KNOLL!

    That was some ironical timing though.

    Most don`t know that it is to the tune of an old English drinking song. You`re OK with that one - a couple of hundred years have made it yours.

    says the person that is from a continent that spread across the world conquering, destroying, raping, exploiting, enslaving and dehumanizing every single non-white culture they encountered.

    oh and started two world wars AFTER spending several counturies during the dark ages warring within themselves...
