    Err, no it doesn't.

    Do you get helicopters going overhead every year or is it just this year? You may know what's the "norm" in NI, I don't.

    Helicopters, sirens and rioting are a normal feature of so-called Orangefest. I try to go away for it. I screwed up this year.

    Nigel Dodds talks out of both sides of his mouth.

    ... These people are far removed from the current tensions over yesterday’s Twelfth parades.

    They have no emotional attachment or interest in such flag-waving and parading.
