Alliance voted against will of the people

The parody of democracy enacted by the Alliance Party in changing the daily flying of the national flag to designated days at the Belfast City Hall has nurtured the ongoing street politics.

What part of the findings of the equality impact assessment - only 10 out of 15,600 responses supported designated days - does Maire Hendren, leader of Alliance councillors at the City Hall, not understand?

This was the democratic despotism of elitist liberalism of those agnostic on Northern Ireland's position in the United Kingdom.

Alliance had no electoral mandate to make an amendment for flying the national flag on designated days and should have voted in opposition to the proposal for the removal of the flag.
