Union flag review to go ahead at council

Nelson - “Nationalism and unionism are on an equal footing in this borough and we must continue to reflect this equality.”

Anderson - “It’s a very sad day when this unionist-controlled council in Craigavon, in Northern Ireland, in the United Kingdom, is having to ask for permission to fly the flag of this country.”

Dixon - “If council pass this motion it is a message that violence and intimidation works.”

Harkness - “Our Britishness isn’t going to go away, you know.”

O’Dowd - “In proposing this review they are looking over their shoulders at loyalist paramilitaries instead of standing up to them.”
