UUP grouping refuse to take part in puerile signage debate

1 Mins read

In recent months on Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, a cross party sub group was set up to decide on signage for the Limavady area, the group quickly found consensus on the signage which included wording and imagery relating to “the dog leap” , “the Londonderry air” and “Danny boy”.

The agreed signage was put before a council committee in the month of September, and was passed unanimously.

Unfortunately at last night’s full council meeting, the usual suspects decided to row back on their agreed position by entering into the tiresome “Derry/Londonderry” debate.

Cllr Darryl Wilson made use of the council’s standing orders to put an end to the debate, by proposing that members move immediately to a vote. The proposal stifled the playground tactics of those parties who are determined to divide society for their own political gain.

Cllr Wilson’s proposal to not debate the issue was successful, and in turn the proposed signage was passed by a majority.

He added, “all too often we see elected representatives in Northern Ireland entering into time consuming divisive debates, with little of no regard for the real issues which face ratepayers on a daily basis.”
