Alliance wrong on flying Union flag every day

Ian James Parsley got one thing correct in his letter (Write Back, November 8): the situation about the City Hall flag has been misrepresented by the Alliance Party.

First, Mr Parsley hides behind legal advice that the risk to the present policy is 'low'.

Second, it is laughable to blame respondents to a public consultation as the source of the problem.

However, this is emblematic of the contempt for the public shown by Mr Parsley. His defence of it as 'Alliance policy' makes it clear they always intended to disregard the public consultation, if it didn't match their predicted view.

With such an impoverished case, it is unsurprising he tries to change the topic to unrelated issues of paramilitary flags, but he ultimately ends up in confusion.
