ASDA customers are complaining about the supermarket's hooded England flags, that lend the wearer an uncanny resemblance to a certain group of white-hooded racists.

ASDA have stood behind their product however. The £3 St George's Cross, with the word England on the red cross, features a hood which the supermarket says is to allow fans to stay dry in the unpredictable British weather.
In reality the flag is very questionable, and is definitely not a millions miles off the garments worn by the Ku Klux Klan, the organisation that terrorised communities across the southern United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries .
