I’d love to claim credit for these words but they came from one of the correspondents on this blog.
The DUP, not least in the shape of Jeffrey Donaldson, continues to engage in promoting the irrational claptrap that flying the British Flag as directed by the British Crown is somehow not British.
The UUP, not least in the shape of its leader Mr Former UTV Presenter, makes equally ludicrous and irrational claims about their identity being “chipped away at” by flying the British Flag as directed by the British Crown.
Sinn Fein in response proposes a Border Poll – which it is not allowed to have under the terms of the Agreement it claims to support and cannot in any case possibly win – presumably to pretend to make up, after decades of terrorism, for having voted to fly the British Flag as directed by the British Crown.
