Today we’re back to the issue of the Irish National Flag flying over Stormont
After 7 detectives on the job for 7 days and 7 nights,
the Orange Order issued a statement:
“The Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland . .. .
Comment: Excuse me!!! The Grand Orange Lodgers of Ireland??? isn’t this Britain?Why are the Irish Orange Lodgers interfering?
“have condemned the recent flying of an Irish tricolour at Stormont“.
Comment: Can we presume the Grand Orange Lodgers of Ireland condemn burning the Irish tricolour on the 11th night ? It is a political statement which could offend “brethren”, isn’t it? If no condenmation, why not?
“it clearly went against the democratic wishes of the majority pro-Union community in this Province“.
Comment: We’re all minorities now!!
The Grand Orange Lodgers of Ireland don’t do homework.
Has no Grand Orange Lodger read the latest UK census?
Not a bit of wonder they constitute the generation that fails exams in Ulster
“senior republican refuses to tolerate a six minute Orange parade along the Crumlin Road in his own constituency“.
Comment: nice soundbite – no connection to reality like so many of the Grand Orange Lodger’s statements
To compare like with like
* 1) the Irish National Flag would need to spend 6/ 10 minutes singing and playing sectarian songs, interrupting traffic and being accompanied by thousands of drunk Orangemen throwing stones, rioting and attacking police, intimidating residents
* 2) Then it would have to do the same thing every year, because it has always done it. It’s a traditional flag flying thing or as the Orange Lodger calls it ‘kultural expression‘
* 3) And it would have to do all these things do it in practically every town in “”ar wee pravince”.
* 4) And cost £40k a day to police
Query: Will the Grand Orange Lodger be issuing statements every time Union Flag is used in a very political and wholly inappropriate manner?
Comment: Quite frankly, our Grand Orange Lodger is
He didn’t mention
loyalty to the crown,
or a Pradestent backlash
and descent into civil war .
