Alliance voting with SF-IRA on language

I have still not worked out why the Alliance party offices are in predominantly unionist areas?

I’m maybe wrong but I do not know of any in a nationalist/republican area even though their actions tell us they are certainly not unionists.

As an election looms on the horizon surely true unionists would not consider voting for a party that votes for an Irish language worker being used as a stick to beat unionists.

To see Michael Long try to justify voting with republicans in a letter in the News Letter (May 5) is pathetic.

In his address in the council he mentioned being an Irish Presbyterian.

As a Presbyterian myself I think I can safely say that the majority of our church would not support any Irish language act that Sinn Fein/IRA wants.

He also mentioned moderator elect Rev McNeely in his letter to try and justify his voting with Sinn Fein/IRA.

He and his party seem to pick out what they see justifies their actions.

Those who are Presbyterians and maybe even hold office do not seem to quote the church when it comes to the likes of gay marriage.

I sincerely hope that unionists will see through their hypocrisy and do not vote for a party that will endanger the Union with our fellow British friends.
