the turning of the tide

I'll report this straight and you can make your own mind up. In ASDA at Halifax on Saturday an announcment came over the PA asking customers with St Georges flags on their cars to remove them as they were causing offence to the local Asian community. Most of those flying the flags simply left their trolleys where they were in the aisles and headed for home. Now my question is, if a customer complained to staff that a Pakistan flag on a car windscreen was causing them offence, do you think the store would have put out the announcement?
