It's fair to say though that the speaker at the meeting was a Unionist, whose comments regarding the walkout were rather more mature than the media and Nationalist reaction! And indeed, only three Unionist councillors actually walked out. Bad publicity for the UUP - maybe they should take a leaf out of the Sinn Fein book of walkouts and claim they needed the toilet!

I'm in two minds regarding the Irish language... I might have no emotional connection to it, but I do have an intellectual interest, and it is a shame to see it so heavily politicised. Linda Ervine's attempts to counter this are laudable, but I do wonder if its main attraction is its political potency. It certainly seems to be used as a way of marking territory/showing domination.

Interesting to see the Irish Republic moving away from it quite dramatically, and chatting to folks from across the border it's striking to hear them talk about Irish as a bit of a pain!
