The hardest people to convince of the stunning success …as the Government Press Officers claim…of Belfast City Centre…seem to the city centre traders themselves. They even had a meeting last night about it. Did I see Michael Desn, the restaurant owner in attendance?
Busy night for him. Dean was in the Nolan audience Houston a few seats away from Jamie Bryson, one of the alleged leaders of the Belfast Spring. dean was lamenting loss of trade. But surely a business opportunity was missed. Dean’s restaurant is about one hundred metres from the City Hall, scene of the Saturday protests by Jamie and his mates.
Surely Dean should have offered the protestors a deal. Or surely Bryson should have tried to negotiate a group booking for him and his mates.
Everyones a Winner.
