DUP flag vote left blowing in wind

The DUP says No – to a new flag for Northern Ireland.

Six of their MPs have tabled a motion in the Commons rejecting "efforts to dilute the status" of the Union flag.

They also "demand that the national flag is treated with respect and is appropriately recognised throughout Northern Ireland and especially in Belfast."

Flags might be a big issue here, but at Westminster nobody cares.

No other MPs have signed the DUP motion.
