When was the last time you were in a locale that boasted an Equine Liaison Officer? Well, rural Hampshire, England has one by the name of Derek Grist, and he's not exactly thrilled with all of the cars flying the Union Jack during the runup to the World Cup. Why? Because the waving flags apparently have the capacity to spook horses, causing them to bolt. Apparently, the horses are roughly as amenable to British subjugation as the Indians, Scots, Irish, Sex Pistols and Farago.
