Cllr Russell Watton: We have to stop the constant drip of concession after concession

Cllr Russell Watton: We have to stop the constant drip of concession after concession

By Cllr Russell Watton  After a week of reflection on the “Stormont Deal”, I think I should now voice my opinion, for what it’s worth.

Inside the talks: How a faction of the DUP are holding the line against efforts to pay nationalism’s ransom demand

Editor@UnionistVoice.com  @JamieBrysonCPNI  The proposals currently on the table include a convoluted ransom payment on the Irish Language. To all intents and purposes it is the February 18 deal, but re-worked in order to present what in practical terms is stand-alone Irish Language legislation so that it appears as if it is not stand-alone, and instead […]
