was there ever a court hearing in the mainland where a pivotal witness was allowed not to give evidence?

answer is no, so therefore that renders the subject title a nonsense.

Union Flag, 250 protestors yesterday Belfast...
In recent weeks, because of the cold, but not even, artic weather conditions numerous protestors have dumped the flag protest, in case they receive a cold...
Come the summer, as tensions rise because of the marching season, and the ongoing flag protest and the warm weather hopefully comes back, thousands of protestors will return to the streets...LOL,LOL.

Common remark from loyal Protestants..
"we will do anything, for our flag pal"

"Except that is go to a flag protest, whenever it is cold, as we would rather be under our union flag duvet covers, with a hot water feckin bottle"

If I was a British person in England etc, I would not need to depend on these people whenever the going was to get tough!!!

I actually live in Belfast. East belfast was a rundown $hithole before all this. Very few jobs, very bad neighbourhood, boarded windows, shopfronts abandoned or had their windows put through.

And now that they've started trashing the place it's a no go zone for businesses and homeowners alike. It's got the cheapest rent/houseprices because noone wants to live in the place.

They are shooting themselves in the foot. They will destroy the area and will then complain its neglected and that other areas are getting more attention/ funding etc.

I've seem them out protesting against the council, democracy, education, government. Essentially everything a civilised society needs.
