Suddenly those that preach it aren't so democratic tonight. 29 votes to 21, move along.

To be fair to the mob at the city hall, I had a dodgy hotdog there on Friday at the continental Market and felt like making a protest myself

Just over a week ago, the council's strategic policy and resources committee voted 11-9 in favour of removing the flag completely.

So why wasnt it completely removed??

Its not the same place their granddaddies or even dads grew up in and they all know it. No more guaranteed decent jobs just because of who you are/where you are from/whatever education you have. Times are changing and the more they stick to their neanderthalic bigoted ways then the worse it will feel for them but they dont care , '' We arra Peepil !!! '' '' Feck the pope !! '' '' Why dont u go home !!??!! '' , all those vitriolic songs will even it out for them in their walnut sized brain.

They made a compromise with the Alliance party that it would be only flown for 15 days during the year, like in Stormont.

Not quite correct. The vote to remove the flag completely was done by a council commitee. To actualy enact anything like this they needed a vote from the full council. Dunno why the bother with the smaller commitee at all but thats politics for ye.
 
The Alliance party brought the 15 days motion at full council and thats what was passed.

Funny how some use democracy to justify their position and yet the same people can trace their own creation to totally undemocratic actions........

An 18 year old and 2 22year old blokes were arrested . If 1000 odd taig nationalists were outside city hall looking to break in and cause harm then live rounds would have been ordered by the police chief, make no question.

so they have eveything in common then with their enemies in the U.S..... Iran was a monster created by the US over greed for oil going back to the 50 s... now they are using the old 'sadamm WMD' .. ploy
