BBC News - Parades Commission ruling on Remembrance Day march past Belfast flashpoint
Well done to the Parades Commission for imposing sensible conditions that everybody taking part in the parade should have no problem adhering to.The Parades Commission has placed restrictions on a march due to pass a parade flashpoint in north Belfast on Saturday.
The march has been organised by the Apprentice Boys of Derry to mark Remembrance Day.
The commission has ruled that only hymn tunes must be played as the bands pass St Patrick's church in Donegall St.
What could possibly be wrong with insisting that bands participating in a parade, organised by a self-defined religious body, should be restricted to playing religious hymns going past a church?
The response from some of the "friskier" participants, e.g. YCV types, will be interesting.
