It’s the 11th Night.
To followed by the 12th Day
It’s crept up on me unawares this year, beset as I am with other, more pressing issues
(What size T-shirt do I order online for my son?
Will I have a job after Brexit?
Does anybody care?)
I have complained about the Loyal Orders often enough over the years
It’s always the same old, same old
Year in, year out!
Burning rubbish, tatty flags and marching down roads where they aren’t wanted.
So here we go again!
An Orangeman has today called for calm among the human community after a number of Orangemen have openly insulted people of the Other Sort
Mervyn McOrange (mental age 3) claims the recent spate of incidents was down to “a small minority” who were inadvertently giving the rest of the Orange community “a bad name”.

“Don’t paint us all with the one Orange colour,” he told The Mirror .
“There are some hard-working Orangemen in this area who just want to get on with their lives and feed their families. Nationalists and Republicans are on about a Orange-cull and now every one of us fear for our lives, what with all this talk of a “new agreed, re-United Ireland and Scottish Independence”.
Mr. McOrange’s comments came after Northern Irish (Oops British) woman,
A F (no names, no pack-drill), had her heartland East Belfast bonfire burnt down ahead of time by Orangemen/Loyalists.
“There were about twelve of them in total,” she explained . “One asked me for a light, but I told him I didn’t smoke. Before I knew it another one was in my handbag, taking out my matches. I shooed them away, but they managed to take off with my match box. I haven’t been able to light a fire since”.
Comment: No Cash for her Ashes!
Since being robbed, Ms. A F said the Orangemen/Loyalists have been updating her facebook page with selfies, taunting her.
A prominent ROI Senator
called for action against Loyal Orders and has invited members of their community to an emergency meeting.
“The only way we can stop this is to work together and pinpoint the perpetrators from the get-go,” he told The Mirror.
There are an estimated 100 million members of the Loyal Orders living in the Belfast area alone, with almost 14% of those with some form of criminal record.
“Many members are unemployed, scrounging on the dole, living in disadvantaged areas,” added the Senator.
“Hopefully we can come to some solution with the Orange community, whether it be a social or a final solution”.
