As Mr bunions effort has been zoo'd presumably for poor OP, I will endeavor to provide one of succinct quality for a premier political site.

The Shin Flake Fleggers are furious at fleg banning and are demanding the right to not ban banned flegs...

Derry City & Strabane Council has taken over responsibility and is insisting the event now abides by council policy on excluding political flags - as is normal in the annual Londonderry city parade. A council spokesman said: "In keeping with the paper approved by the Council's Business and Culture committee the event will be a cross-community cultural celebration with a strong family friendly focus. Therefore flags and emblems will not be included in the official parade, which is planned for the enjoyment of everyone."

So to over come this pesky piece of Trojan outreaching and to smash the barstewarts with equality Shin Flake Fleggers want the fleg to be considered non political and representing the national saint..

Sinn Fein Councillor Karina Carlin said her party will oppose the policy for Strabane with a formal motion.

“The national flag has always formed part of the celebrations in Strabane without any difficulty or controversy,” she said. “We see no reason why that cannot continue and why the national flag cannot be carried as part of the official event to celebrate the national patron saint.”




Well now karina have ye considered yer own parties tribute to the symbol of the national saint..



So piesters, when is a Political Flag not, a Political Flag? Well according to Shin Flake Fleggers a Political Flag is not, a Political Flag when its a Non Political Apolitical Fleg, simples...

Since St. Patrick was a Protestant back in the 5th century it should really only leave one option, the flag of William of Orange. And there's one for everyone in the audience.

To be honest, the Shinner doesn't seem furious. She is just making a reasonable point.

You know the way kids have their toys taken away when they won't use them properly and just cause trouble with them? Same approach should be taken to flags and emblems in Northern Ireland - just ban the lot until people grow up.

Presumably now the Orange Order Lodges linked to Saint Patrick will now take part?
Such as The Cross of St Patrick LOL 688.

Apparently Flags were banned from the Belfast city centre parade years ago in an attempt to make it more inclusive, an attempt that was welcomed by one SF Councillor, Mairtin O Muilleoir

Why do Unionists like Between Bridges hate Irish Catholics so much?

National flags do not need to be part of the celebrations (if individuals want to bring them, that's their choice, but not officially). The aim of St. Patrick's Day should be that it is inclusive to all. 17th March is not July 12th, and no Nationalist should ever want it to be as such.

Outreach never worked despite years of trying and even meeting Queenie - being in the executive with the DUP etc- The GFA will go ahead without the Assembly- I would say there will be some crying by the Unionists to have the Assembly back up in a United Ireland and that can be looked at-
But it’s time for the Tricolour at Saint Patrick day events- it’s also time to outreach to all the Catholic people now instead of the other-

In places like Tyrone their is no "need" for the national flag to be flown on st Patrick's day.

That would come under people’s choice- imagine trying to tell any American not to fly their national flag at a Saint Patrick’s march in the USA-

In the Republic, Protestant minorities were given special privledges and guarantees back in the 1920's. These were copperfastened after WW2. Unfortunately the opposite happened in the North. The minority Catholics were treated very badly. This resulted in an armed rebellion later in the late 60s and carried on until the 90's.
