Alliance is now a nationalist party


It was interesting to see the Alliance Party literally lining up with the SDLP and Sinn Fein and the aptly named Green Party to support the nationalist/republican-driven demand for a costly and one-sided Irish Language Act.

It has become a widespread view among unionists that Alliance is now a nationalist party.

This view was supported by events such as Anna Lo confirming last year her firm support for a united Ireland and the Alliance vote that was pivotal in removing the Union flag at City Hall.

The present unseemly line-up confirms this perspective - as does the Alliance Party not showing any concern, or respect, for Ulster-Scots language and culture.

One wonders how their vote will hold up now in unionist areas.
