Zealot Parsley putting ideals before people

Published 29/03/2013

I note with interest Ian James Parsley's frustration at his inability to express his 'British identity' (Write Back, March 27) and his citing of a minor victory in removing the national flag from its century-old position on Belfast City Hall.

He does not, apparently, have sympathy with those west of the Bann, where nationalists/republicans deny them any opportunity to express their 'British identity', having removed the national flag completely. Like most liberal zealots, Ian is so busy trying to reach the moral high ground he tramples on the views of the majority of society – no matter how widely they are held.
