DUP Councillor Ruth Patterson cannot bring herself to condone or condemn the burning of the Irish National Flag outside the City Hall in Belfast today. Which is par for the course. But her claim that Republicans often burn their own flag at demonstrations is just jaw dropping.
Yet perhaps I should have discussed my funeral arrangements with her. The National Flag that I have owned for forty years will be in my coffin. And I intend to be cremated.
It is a great pity Jimmy Spratt DUP MLA got more votes in the Assembly Election than party colleague Ruth. I would love to see her in the Assembly.
I bet those two wee Catholic girls who refused to play with her in 1969 are really feeling guilty about it now.
