St George would be proud (?)

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/isle_of_man/5067824.stm

On a related flag/Isle of Man/football note: I loved the sentence in the following news report that "She can paint over it if she wants".

St George would be proud (?)
England flag house surprises wife

A woman who thought her husband was painting their house got a shock when she woke up an found a St George's flag daubed on the side.

Floyd Wilson spent several hours up a ladder by his house in Douglas on the Isle of Man on Friday night.

His wife, Donna, did not know about the mural and thought he was painting the side of the house as a treat.

Mr Wilson said she had a few choice words upon discovering it, but added: "She can paint over it if she wants."

The Leeds United fan painted the flag on his house, in Close Cowley, on Friday night while his wife was asleep.

"She thought I was painting the house as a treat for her. She thought I was painting it white," he said.

"She was hanging the washing out this morning at about six o'clock and she heard the bin men walking down the street singing 'England'.

"She came around to have a look at them singing and then saw the wall.

"She rang me and swore at me a few times."
