    Default Flag row at Belfast City Hall : Unionists leaflet tries to put pressure on Alliance

    The UUP and DUP have joined forces to distribute leaflets telling anyone who will listen that if the Union Flag is to be flown only on designated days, it will be the Alliance Party's fault.
    BBC News - Alliance Party 'disgusted' at DUP/UUP flag policy leaflet

    On the Nolan show, the DUP's Christopher Stalford told the Alliance that they should change their "designated day" stance due to the result of a "public consultation".

    The Alliance party stood for election under the "designated days" policy at the last election.

    Said "consultation" consisted of 17,000 replies, of which the two Unionists parties supplied 15,000 from a petition they organised!
    Audioboo / Flag row at Belfast City Council heats up.

    Stalford and co seem to want to over-ride the last council election results, some things never change.

    The DUP could get McCoubrey to make sure of it considering his connections.

    If the Unionists removed their disgusting sectarian hatreds from their policy making and concentrated on arguing why the union is beneficial to people they would get much further.

    The DUP seem determined to win back Peter Robinson's seat taken from it by the toothless Alliance Party by playing to base sensitivities of the majority of the East Belfast electorate. Embarrassing stuff altogether.

    OK, shall we drop the Unionist and refer to Anti-Alliance?
    Granted, Unionists having trouble with democracy is hardly news so the biased BBC shouldn't have brought it up, would that do?

    Theloner got it spot on:

    December could be the month when the penny finally drops with unionists when the butchers aprin comes down from City Hall and the census results confirming that the Protestant majority is gone and gone forever.
