I was shocked and disturbed to read this news item on The Evening Herald website:
"The leader of the Orange Order has told a rally in Co. Down this afternoon that its annual parade in the city attracts more people than any similar event in Ireland or Britain.
Robert Saulters, the Orange Order's grand master, said the Twelfth of July parades could become a major tourist attraction if they get support from the tourist board...
On a more politically contentious note, he said it was sickening to watch those who had carried out dastardly terrorist attacks sitting in government.
It was, he said, 'time to bring back hanging or the electric chair for murder and the cat of nine tails for those carrying weapons, whether they are guns or knives.
'The days of pussy-footing with criminals should end, assuring the British government that there would be many volunteers in the North to gladly carry out executions."
