Tony Blair to fly England Flag

Tony Blair has ordered the cross of St George to be flown above 10 Downing Street on England World Cup match days. I think this is wrong, Tony Blair is the prime minister of the United Kingdoms of Northern Ireland and Great Britain. Great Britain happening to be composed of Scotland, England and Wales in equal importance - and just for the record, TB was born in Edinburgh. I wouldn't expect, nor imagine, that the Prime Minister would fly a St Andrews cross if Scotland were playing, a Red Dragon for Wales - or God Forbid - The Red Hand of Ulster!

I think this is a severe error in Judgement as now I would expect a flag for each country to be flown for each of their match days - for example if Northern Ireland qualified in the next World Cup - what happens if Northern Ireland play England for example?
