Alliance Party Offices in East Belfast attacked again

At around 11pm the PSNI have confirmed that three devices where thrown at the Alliance party offices on the Newtownards Rd in East Belfast.

When this happened last November I wrote a piece about the members of staff who work in that office and most of the same people are still there. Nearly 18 months after the flag vote, members of staff having to work under dire conditions and constituents are being denied access to their local MP.

Politicians offices being attacked is nothing new in Northern Ireland and sadly in 2014, it is still going on. Like a nightmare, we cannot seem to wake up from the mindless hatred that fuels something like this. There are 23 days until polling day, if people dislike the party so much, then at council and European level they can register their protest by voting against them.

The party has taken to Twitter to deliver its message
