Before commenting on Irish public figures adversely commenting on President Michael D. Higgins. It’s worth pointing out in respect of one of the main issues, namely, the formal manner of addressing an office holder; The DUP, and other Unionist are well versed in the absolute necessity when being “Presented” (note Presented, not introduced) to their Monarch, to be addressing the same as; “Your Majesty” and ‘Ma’Ma. One doesn’t think there’s a single Unionist/Loyalist/Royalist, who even dare to think that the formal manner of addressing their Monarch is of little consequence. So, would one not expect that they would ensure to treat, what they consider a Foreign Dignity with equal respect as to their correct title?
