Basil McCrea rejects UUP flag stance - Headlines - Belfast Newsletter

Power to your elbow Sir.



" The Lagan Valley MLA told the News Letter: “Lisburn City Council, which is unionist-dominated, has had designated days as its policy for a long time.

“Part of that is because we should be doing what is commonplace in the rest of United Kingdom. The Union Flag should not be used as a political pawn – it should be respected properly. "


The flag is now respected properly - even by SF. - What do Loyalists want - Dictorship?

Don't think he'll last long in the UUP at this stage! He wouldn't confirm or deny whether he would join the Alliance party or not on the radio yesterday.

Heard him on Talkback yesterday. A thinking and reasonable man, as opposed to Mr. Media Nesbitt who seems to think he is the spokesperson for unionism.

I have been saying it for some time, McCrea is in the wrong party and won't fight the next election as a UUP candidate. Nor will John McCallister.

When unionism is threatened they back themselves into a corner as can be seen by their ' flag (RIOTS) protests'. It's the last kick of a dying racist breed, Affrikaners were the same.

Spot on. Loyalists/unionists remind me of the Afrikaners in the dying days of apartheid South Africa.

These AWB/Afrikaner members had manners put on them,as the death of Apartheid loomed closer.They ended up pleading for their lives,but to no avail.
The soldiers had enough of them and their mistreatment of blacks,and acted accordingly.Graphic images.

I need a history lesson a lot less than you need an English lesson, it would appear.The above sentence looking like something to be corrected in an eleven plus paper.

Murder is "putting manners on" people? Dear god.
They had numerous chances to leave peacefully,and when they were on there way out the murdered lots of innocent people.
The group of white extremists only had themselves to blame.
