Supermarket Asda have defended the sale of their new wearable England flags after critics claimed it looked like a Ku Klux Klan hooded outfit.

The rather hideous looking garment, with the word “England” emblazoned across a St. George’s cross, costs £3 and comes with a special pointy hood.

Asda’s PR bods said:

“We know there’s chatter on Twitter about our wearable World Cup flags, but it’s simply a flag with a hood – nothing more, nothing less.

“We opted for a hood on our wearable England and Brazilian flags as you never know what the British weather will bring.

“We want customers to get behind the team without getting wet.”

It’s “political correctness gone mad”, etc – although…


It’s definitely a bit KKK-y.

    Seems a bit more Abu Ghraib-y to me….
    But whatever it is it bleedin’ hideous.

    I don’t see the problem unless the people wearing it are burning crosses and chasing down Jewish and people of African descent. Sartorially speaking, it is awful!

    Anyone buying a flag with ENGLAND or some other shit written on it is probably a bit of a dick anyway.
