In this utopia letsgetalong shared future, we have seen SF/IRA meet HMQ, and now we have the pan national front (SF/IRA. SDLP, & Alliance) voting to fly the Union Flag in line with all other UK cities. One wonders how long before all other nationalist councils will be compelled to comply with this unionist outreach program, after all if it's good enough for nationalist controlled Belfast...

Is this now being seen as a Unionist victory? If so, could you let all of those rioting twat's know.

Nationalist controlled councils support equality, no flegs. If they controlled Belfast it would be the same there.

There was a democratic compromise in Belfast. Clearly Unionists don't do democracy. Quelle surprise.

I did rather enjoy this video from the protests:

[video=youtube_share;x8H3KNvQ29E]http://youtu.be/x8H3KNvQ29E[/video]

That bit where they burnt the tricolour is pure tribalism, though. You're not going to convince anyone by burning someone else's flag - the same way that the other side isn't helping anything by burning yours. You can do it, and I don't disagree with the right to do that - but do people really want to? What does it achieve?

That said, I have the strong feeling that unionists - no matter how well-intentioned - aren't going to win this battle. I very much understand and identify with their concern, but I also fear that they may not be doing themselves many favours. So, protest about it all you like, and I sympathise, but you ain't going to win, I'm afraid.

It doesn't. They know what these people are like. That is why they printed the leaflet about Alliance. They knew fine rightly what would happen.
Erm.....I don't think they had to make such a risky calculation, especially not Robo

They never win the PR battle, because they are politically inept.
A bunch of thugs rampaging around the streets draped in Union Jacks (many defaced with "Rangers" slogans), hooded faces and throwing petrol bombs, whilst illiterate mobs rave "Ulster is British" and being addressed by a Scotch thug from the National Front (or formerly as such), would be regarded in most quarters in Britain as abhorrent. I'm sure even the mostly cuddly, though slightly looney, members of UKIP find it a bit unsettling.

The utter irrationality of the Unionist position is another issue. The English like compromise, it's what defines their political character and has since the time of John Locke. Refusing democratic compromise and turning to rave and rampage is very, well, un-British.

It more and more resembles the behaviour of the pied-noirs in Algeria in the early 60s before the French pulled out. Thankfully these nuts don't have the support to try and pull of a putsch when things don't go their way.
