    Default Orange Order may not notify parades commission on parades

    On news today,
    Orange Order may not notify parades commission of marches as they may choose to exploit political deadlock. I'm afraid that this has been brewing from last year were protestors were not punished yet legal marches were vilified by minor errors. I say that i have to agree with seeking an alternative to the current approach were Loyal order parades obey the rules and laws yet protestors can do what they want without repremand. This is what the loyalist flag protestors have exploited so sometimes you reap what you sow.

    What absolute nonsense.

    Last year was littered with examples of the orange order being deliberately antagonistic, at least be honest about it.

    Don't agree at all - after years of abiding to the parades commission nonsense and seeing rulings against them yet illegal protests are rewarded by sanctions against the Loyal orders. IMO this partisan, alienation of the Loyal orders and their supporters over what were blatently trivial matters are part of the reason why the Flag protests happened and are ongoing. You can't keep get vilified for very little reason without at some time drawing a line in the sand and get the parades commission to stand up and be counted and decide on a notified parade or a protest in a equal manner.

    TBH, I will not cry the day when these idiotic marches are consigned to the dustbin of history.

    Does anyone really think that the commission was set up to deal with parades? Surely it is clear that they were set up to deal with the opposition to parades.

    How easy is it to become a " reverend " in the north ? There was one on tv last night gloating about how they would be defying the parades commission. He sounded about as reverend as your local joyrider.

    Can we consign the entire North to the dustbin of history while we're at it.

    Good to see you have moved on from making blowjob jokes about recently deceased females.
