Topic - Flying the Union Jack?

Frank4short - on 07 Jan 2013
So we're now on about the 3rd week (I think) of violence in Belfast by loyalists after a democratically elected council democratically decided to only fly the Union Jack on Belfast City Hall on something like 20 days a year as opposed to the previous 365.

So being Irish, not British, I personally just see it as a bunch of disaffected thugs using it as an excuse to cause trouble. However like I said I'm Irish and the Union Jack holds no symbol to me. So do you think they're entitled to be aggrieved by this decision not to permanently fly the Union Jack? Or would you agree it's just the symptoms of some other greater more deeply seated issues that NI is currently revisiting.
