Brexiteer who mistook Munster flag for terrorist symbol now calls out new green, white and orange JD bag

We can't help but feel like he's clutching at straws here...

Jamie Bryson, a self-professed "Unionist activist and Brexiteer" has taken issue with a bag used by the sports fashion store JD, as it has the green, white and orange of a tricolour on it.

Bryson took to Twitter to voice his complaints, where he asked what would happen if they started handing out red, white and blue bags.

Although plenty of people were keen to point out the fact that Tesco do already have the bags he discusses...

He has also written an opinion piece about what he is referring to as "Bag-gate", saying that it "neatly undermines nationalism’s own more extreme grievance narratives".

This isn't the first time that Bryson has attracted some criticism for something he has said online.

He is the same guy that, during the Republic of Ireland vs Northern Ireland football game in November, mistook a Munster flag for a flag bearing the likeness of a man in a balaclava — hearkening back to old IRA imagery.

The less said about that incident the better.
