In the latest massive humanitarian blow against Shin flakes attempts at an Apartheid language act, the duppers are seeking to balance the books and strategically target the key Ulster Scots minority culture with mere 140 million investment as part of the future Cultural act for all...

A leaked document submitted to the Stormont talks proposes giving an additional £140 million of taxpayers’ money for Ulster-Scots. Here is a breakdown of proposals of how the money would be spent.

a few examples of the benefits of the Cultural act for all, are...

• Corn Exchange: £8 million – A proposal to purchase the historic building in Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter which has been the Ulster-Scots Agency’s home since 2013.

• Hairtlan fund: £6.5 million – A multi-million pound project to create “six Hairtlan areas in Northern Ireland” to create a “distinctive sense of place reflecting Ulster-Scots identity” and to “lever investment” from other government agencies.

• Cultural centres fund: £20 million – The creation of Ulster-Scots cultural centres which would be a “catalyst” and help in “levering additional resources” from “other funding sources”.

• Heritage tourism fund: £20.5 million – Investment in telling the “neglected” story of Northern Ireland’s Ulster-Scots heritage, including the links to several US presidents.

• Public art fund: £10.5 million – Citing the recent erection of the Bushmills statue to Robert Quigg VC, the paper argues that public art can “generate immense positivity” and be “quick wins”.


As our CNR posterz already know wan can not put a price on culture, but sure 140 mills nat a bad start ye wee dafty's...

140 mill? That would have got you another six years of futile protesting at Twaddell. Get your priorities right,ffs.

Smash the barstewarts with equality...

The proposal to massively increase public funding for Ulster Scots cultural and linguistic initiatives was made at a point when the DUP was arguing at the talks that Sinn Fein’s demand for an Irish language act should instead be incorporated into some form of ‘cultural act’ incorporating Ulster-Scots.

It said that “the Irish language and by extension Irish cultural identity received hundreds of millions of pounds from the education system, while Ulster-Scots received nothing”.

The paper quoted a February DUP press release which said that more than £171 million had been spent on the Irish language between 2011/12 and 2015/16 – “roughly 10 times the amount of funding which went to Ulster-Scots language, heritage and culture as a whole in the period”.

The paper went on to claim that “the Ulster-Scots community is experiencing discrimination” and that “the scale of imbalance between the Irish and Ulster-Scots sectors is such that equality cannot realistically be achieved in the short to medium term”.

It argued that in asking for £139.55 million over a decade, the request would still be £30 million less than the Irish language had received in the last five years.

Anglo-Irish chauvinist implies that Ulster Scots are all mentally retarded. How heart warming.

The Ulster-Scots Agency has difficulty spending the grant it gets at present. What will they do with 140 million?

Ulster Scots Version: Man dear, sure yon hallions cannae get rid o' the poonds they get the noo. Wat in under God wud they be daein wi' 140 big wans?

Irish version I(for inclusivity): Tugtar i bhfad barraíocht airgid do na leathdhaoine sin mar atá gan 140 milliún a chur amú ar bhannaí píob agus ar sparáin.

Ha, not likely ole bean :cool:
If yer brain power exceeded that of a whoopee cushion ye would see exactly were this is going, the only sticking point is Shin Flake want a separate language act for both, to be able to declare supreme victory and the duppers want both in a cultural act, to be able to declare supreme victory...

A thread deliberately designed to stir up tribal hatred without reason or justice while at the same time mocking both of two major Ulster tribes. Why on earth was he allowed to start threads again?

I'll probably regret saying this, it's because he's a wee dafty, to use his own words.

I'm glad about the money coming towards Ulster Scots but I have been saying since I started posting here that the fact that the Irish Language Act wasn't coming through was fatally undermining the GFA. The GFA is now basically history, it is easy to imagine dissos rubbing their hands with glee, but history will record that the DUP going full on window licker after the Big Mon was thrown out (who kept himself pure from the Orange Order it should be remembered) that ended a happy ending for everyone.

The DUP never signed up for the GFA, they hate it. They've been fighting a rearguard action ever since which they know is doomed. St Andrews gave them a bit of cover but they couldn't help themselves with their arrogance and sneering attitude.
It came back to bite them.

Is there anything these clowns won't believe?

'We are British.' Tick
