British Army recruitment billboard not wanted - Maskey

South Belfast MLA, Cllr Alex Maskey has said that a British Army recruitment billboard should not have been erected on Balfour Avenue in South Belfast and has welcomed its removal.

Cllr Maskey said,

"I have contacted the company with responsibility for these billboards and urged for the removal of this particular advertisement. I welcome the fact that it will be taken down and that the vicinity will be restricted in terms of the erection of these offensive adverts.

People in the community here have a very real experience of the brutality and oppression of the British Army and there is no place for glorifying their current antics overseas as well as suggestion it is in some way an excellent career choice."
