Goodbye to Britannia!
It appears that Britannia is no longer relevant in modern Britain and will soon be removed from the coinage. One by one the trappings of 'Britishness' are disappearing from the scene in the former British territories of Scotland, Wales and northern Ireland, and one of our campaigns is for the demise of the Union flag, which already is not flown in Scotland except on 18 days per year. After independence the flag will no longer be seen fluttering in the breeze as is the case in the Republic of Ireland, where the Union flag in not in evidence throughout the land, and for good reason.
