Fly tricolour and Union flag from City Hall

I am a Protestant Englishman. I think the British, Irish, English, Scottish and Welsh flags all look beautiful.

I believe that both the Union and Irish flags should be flown together over Belfast City Hall to represent the whole community.

The island of Ireland should be one sovereign state governed from Dublin. Britain is responsible for the present division between Northern and southern Ireland.

I truly believe the Republic to be a democratic country. Unlike Britain, its head of state is directly elected by its people.

Further, I have no problem with an independent Scotland and Wales. England would be an easier place to live in if separated, peacefully, from the other three nations of the British Isles.
