Unionist councillors accused Sinn Fein and the SDLP of "raising tensions" and abusing their majority on the council. Found that comment to be very ironic.

Strange how the nationalists have a majority in the City but that just shows how time's have changed. As for the unionists, they always ponce on about majorities so to hell with them.

Will they be prosecuted for inciting hatred like the teenager who burnt a paper flower? I think not.

Its a nationalist majority of councellors in the city council, not overall.

West Belfast returns a fair few, North Belfast too. East Belfast is Unionist dominated but Alliance have strengthened there while South Belfast is probably mostly unionist, but due to its slightly posher demographics, its very much the moderates like SDLP, UUP (if they can still be called moderate these days) and alliance that do well there.

North and West Belfast are the most populous areas so overall, Belfast would probably have a Nationilst majority in overall numbers as well actually. And very much looking like that trend will continue. Areas such as Glengormley might have been unionist in the past but are changing.
