Proper use of the White Ensign

From the Telegraph

"The Royal Navy is selling its trademark White Ensign logo to appear on products ranging from clothes to computer games in what it says is an attempt market its "quality brand" to potential young recruits."

Does the copany feel this is a good or a bad thing?

I think (as a marketing man), it is an apalling idea, the white ensign is not a brand, it devalues instantly when slapped across consumer products. I do not see what it would bring to a product anyway.

This smacks of creative consultants (non-elected) in government trying to justify huge fees.

I'd go further....it's TREASON....hang the b*stard that thought up the ridiculous idea....i bet he has a pony tail too!!
 
Personally I think it's a mad idea. It seems to me that all it will do is cheapen the logo and good name of the Royal Navy. These are things that should be cherished and looked after, not sold off to the highest bidder. I don't want the RN to become another market prostitute: we have enough of that in the public services already!

There used to be a charge of bringing the service into disrepute. Can the proposer of this silly and misguided idea be charged with it?

The Naafi will become a Starbucks
Slops will become Top Shop
The Galley will become a Macdonalds franchise
The Wardroom will become a "Fun Kids" bouncy play area.
Senior Rates mess will become a Private retirement facility

God it gets worse!
 
Said much the same in the Mail on Line letters, and in the Naval History thread (I didn't know this one was going on).

What won't this self-serving government stoop to, to cheapen everything they touch ?
