Alex Easton MLA has today warned the Alliance Party to stop stirring tensions and show proper leadership as they lead the way in trying to remove the flying of the Union Flag 365 days a year from Council buildings.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA Said:

“I am at a total loss as to what the Alliance, Greens, SDLP have tried to raise tensions and stir the pot across out Council area about the flying of our Union flag, what I find astounding is that nobody has even complained about the flying of the flag of our county and to raise this and stir the pot is totally irresponsible and only alienates people across Ards and North Down. There was no need for this and I call on the Alliance Party not to raise tensions and indeed start to show proper leadership, these uncalled for actions are not the way to do this. Why stir up issues that nobody had even complained about!
