As readers know, the DUP and UUP have saved the Union, beaten the republican agenda and proved old cynics like me totally wrong. Now read on…
A fresh flag row has erupted after it emerged Northern Ireland will be the only UK region not to incorporate the Union Flag on new driving licences. Announcing the changes for drivers in England, Scotland and Wales, transport secretary Claire Perry said: “British motorists will soon be able to fly the flag with pride.”
Ms Perry said: “People in this country rightly take pride in our national flag which is why I am delighted it will now be displayed on British driving licences. Celebrating Britain strengthens our sense of national identity and our unity. I will feel proud to carry my new licence and I hope others will too.” However, a spokesman for the Driver and Vehicle Agency NI (DVA) said the local licences would continue to display the European flag only.
So, Drivers in Northern Ireland alone will be excluded from having pride in their NATIONAL FLAG. Another superb victory for SUP/UUP.
