Ballymoney Walkout

I see Unionists in Ballymoney have pathetically walked out simply because they didn't like a Sinn Féin councillor's motion on a United Ireland.

My main reaction to this story is simply - WHY?
Is Unionism so lacking in confidence that it can't even argue its case effectively? I mean its not as if the Unionist councillors weren't going to win the vote, they outnumber Nationlists hugely in Ballymena. And surely they could have had the good grace to at least listen to the relevant arguements. Philip McGuigan wasn't demanding that the Unionist councillors agreed with him, however they should at least have had the decency to LISTEN.
