Messerschmidt taken in flag gaffe

Morten Messerschmidt and DF-the-top kicking an open door when proposing to make 15. June to 'national day and thus also the day for hoisting the flag'.

Just the day - called the westinghouse - is already a day for hoisting the flag, which justice minister Nick Hækkerup (S) also pointed out that, from the Parliamentary rostrum.

- Let me for the record just start to make you aware that westinghouse already today is a day for hoisting the flag, said Nick Haekkerup.

the DF's flagbrøler evidenced by a resolution, which on Friday was discussed in the Parliament.

'the Parliament instructs the government to put forward proposals in the current folketingsår, which recognises the westinghouse 15. June as Denmark's official national day and thus also a day for hoisting the flag', reads the resolution from the Danish people's Party, who is also party chairman Kristian Thulesen Dahl and the group chairman Peter Skaarup is to make.

the rose center is already a day for hoisting the flag, and the question is then alone, on the day so must be exalted to be national day.

It is unclear from the resolution what Messerschmidt and co. understand to be a national holiday, and how the day should be a 'mark everything as is Denmark. Everything that binds us together, as people, as a nation'.

But one thing is certain: the Danish people's Party will not give the danes the free on republic day.

And it would also have been an expensive pleasure. According to the minister of justice it will cost the state treasury around eur 2.5 billion. kr. each year.

- I would significantly rather spend the money on catching criminals, said the minister of justice, who does not believe that one should introduce a national holiday.

the question Itself to make a day for hoisting the flag for a day for hoisting the flag fails Morten Messerscmidt to comment in Folketingssalen.

There are 19 flagdage in Denmark. At westinghouse 15. June flag for the Dannebrog, as - according to the story - fell down from the sky in Estonia and helped Valdemar and the Danish christian to a victory over the heathen estonians. Last year it was supposedly 800 years ago, it happened.

in Addition, there are a number of sacred flagdage, like the Defense also has flagdage.

New Civil backed up on DF proposal, while a number of other parties said no thanks - including the conservatives.

- of course, We must stick to our traditional day, which we already have, but we should not have a decidedly national day, said Naser Khader.

Now, the European committee look at the proposal.

Ekstra Bladet has tried in vain to get a comment from Morten Messerschmidt.
