Flag News: A surge in Middle Eastern demand for American flags to torch, shout at and stamp on, is providing a welcome boost to the US economy.

Exports of the stars and stripes have rocketed by 343% over the last week and manufacturers say they are ‘struggling to keep up’.

“It’s like the 4th of July,” says Mitch Purcell of The Patriot Flag Company, Oregon. “I mean our orders have gone through the roof. We’re working 24hr shifts just to keep up.”

“This is great news for Obama,” says political journalist Jenny Bone.

“At such a crucial time for his election strategy, American products made in America by Americans being so sought-after overseas really helps him prove the effectiveness of his political and economic agenda.”
