True compromise

• I have to disagree with Liz O'Donnell's article in Wednesday's edition saying the "removal of the Union Flag was wrong, and provocative".

Liz says, "The agreement reached on Good Friday 1998 was a historic compromise... the outcome was a new society, which respected equally the birthright of all the people of Northern Ireland to identify themselves as Irish or British, or both." Yes Liz, a compromise. May I suggest both the Irish Tri-colour and Union Flag should be flown? Do you really think Unionism/Loyalism would accept this compromise?
