McNarry driven to flagging up motoring anachronism…

COULD David McNarry (finally?!) have a valid point to make when he argues that Northern Ireland drivers should have the option of displaying the flag of St Patrick alongside their number plate? It does seem unfair that Scotland, England and Wales should be allowed to replace the ring of European stars with their own national flags – but not Northern Ireland. If St Pat’s cross can be agreed to form part of the new PSNI insignia, then it surely can adorn our cars equally easily? In the wake of the ‘Team GB/UK’ row, as occasional Alliance commenter and councillor Ian Parsley notes, it really should be ‘UK’ rather than ‘GB’, shouldn’t it?
