National Anthem at Stormont Remembrance Service :UUP leader Mike Nesbitt speaking about what he said to the Deputy First Minister.

It was a first for the #Stormont Assembly yesterday: an inclusive Act of Remembrance in the Great Hall, led by the Speaker, #Sinn Fein's Mitchell McLaughlin, with Sinn Fein MLAs and ministers, including the deputy first minister, in attendance. A moment of solemn reflection, and a significant act of reconciliation for an Assembly often divided over the politics of the poppy -- you might think. But some unionists were clearly unimpressed that the service did not include the national anthem, and took matters into their own hands.
