Queen's portrait facing remova


www.portadowntimes.co.uk

CRAIGAVON Borough Council is to press ahead with an equality study which may ultimately decide whether the Queen's portrait continues to hang in the Civic Centre.
After an angry debate on Wednesday night, councillors voted 8-4 to follow legal advice and allow the Equality Commission to rule on whether the portrait and other artefacts are conducive to an equal working environment.

this is happening in my town..sinn fien the political wing of the ira or councilors in my local council and have so far had all embalms and links to Britain removed from the council offices and the last thing in there that is British linked is the portrait of the queen given to the council when it opened .... its all done under the guise of people feeling uncomfortable working in a building that has a picture of the queen in the mayors office...
