Ulster Scots lovers lose radio show

With all the stealth of a thief in the night, and not even a summary explanation, BBC Radio Ulster has ushered the only Ulster Scots programme Kist O’ Wurds into oblivion.

A programme that has been running 16 years dispensed with like a bad smell.

This was an offensive act by BBC Radio Ulster prejudice.

While those free loaders and free booters at Stormont, people who have no interest in the culture, hijack it for political purposes, what is the Ulster Scots Agency doing?

It has been given responsibility and several million pounds of tax payers’ money to promote and ensure that this noble culture could stand shoulder to shoulder with an equally noble Irish language.

For BBC Radio Ulster to deprive the Ulster Scots community of their only radio programme is an affront, and the Ulster Scots Agency seem to be silent about it.
