What’s been happening in our beloved Northern Ireland while I’ve been a bit sick over the past few days?
Some 37 bands and 2,000 people took part in the walk/march by the Ballymacarrett District lodge No 6
Then we had MLA Monsters
Oops – Sorry -DUP Ministers supporting a protest at Tenant St police station while 4 men were questioned
which was followed by a perfectly reasonable Parades Commission determination
barring a 12 July Orange Order walk/march from returning along part of the Crumlin Road in north Belfast
The Orange Order can walk/march down but not up the road
Query: What’s the problem?
Query: Who knew being a Protestant was about marching up roads?
I thought it had something to with worshipping God
The future of the powersharing administration in Northern Ireland was again in doubt tonight after Unionist parties walked out of a political talks process in protest at the banning of an Orange Order parade.
Comment: For the series; “we went to talks so you have to do what we say! So we’re leaving in a huff because you didn’t“
Proposal: Take the money of these idiots!!
Comment: They’ve missed the whole point of ‘talks’….if that’s their attitude, press ahead with decisions without them there.
Query: What is this mythical way ‘Protestant way of life’ they refer to?
As we said last year
NB: The average Protestant way of life is exactly the same as the average Catholic. Getting up in the morning, going to work, hanging out with friends and family etc
