Nelson McCausland: revolutionaries deal a blow to Irish freedom … by renaming a street in Belfast in honor of a trade unionist

Last week Lasair Dhearg (Red Flame) was on the streets of Belfast to fight “imperialism”, “colonialism”, “occupation”, “subjugation” and “partition”. Armed with a stepladder and what looked like sticky plastic signs, they were ready to unleash their Marxist Republican revolution. It looks more like a Monty Python script, with a hint of Blue Peter and a lot of Citizen Smith.

they had selected a number of street names and sent a group of activists with the revolutionary mission of pasting 14 new street signs with names.

Most of the new names were those of members of the Provisional IRA, the Irish Republican Brotherhood or the United Irishmen.
