Welcome to Belfast High School Government and Politics department
The antics on the hill get more and more embarrassing by the day. This Armistice day, a day of reverence and solemnity, the event seemed to point to cross community progress with the noticeable and, it has to be said, admirable attendance of Sinn Fein, in what has been considered in the past a unionist event. The occasion however was sullied by Sam Morrison of the TUV singing the National Anthem at the end - something that was not on the program and was obviously concerning for nationalists. This 'stunt' illustrates the bitterness of some on the hill and certainly makes people despair. The only good element was the apologies from Mike Nesbitt of the UUP. Something which was caught on camera and was admirable and progressive for once. Listen to the Stephen Nolan Radio program of 12//11/2015 for a full and fiery debate on this issue.
