Instead of saying, all there 'shows' should be banned you will get the covert loyalists/unionists on here trying the 'look over there at themums' line



They should be banned from all nationalist areas. Let them march about for their own.

In reality less than half of the landmass/area of the north is unionist, (a virtual border many, many miles further in from the actual one).
By 2021 perhaps also less than half the population will be deemed unionist.



Of this shrinking amount of unionism, again it's only a small percent that bother with the 'fires or walking clubs in orange attire.
Think most head off to Espania for their 2weeks in the sunshine and sangria and a bit of peace n' quiet.

LOL!
Love the reaction to this account when people don't notice it's a parody.

Anywhere that is free, jolly, and 5-star of course.

Funny that the BBC (taxpayers) Spotlight TV show that investigated that debacle, sent their reporter (and film crew) all the way out there, just to take a quick look at the view of luxury spot where he stayed.

Happy to double-verify that they went to the correct sunny beach location if someone wants to supply flights, accom and expenses, in the good name of journalism etc, will take a few snaps and shop for souvenirs as evidence.

True but wouldn’t exactly be a full investigation unless they went. Like most people who lecture us in religion/politics he turned out to be a hypocrite. Unionist politicians love to use their loyalist faithful as pawns in their game.

It being a Friday and sunny to boot is going to take it up a few levels.

I pity anyone having to endure this annual drunken hate fest

Shows you how close it is getting to the truth when that happens. A brilliant social experiment

Ra heads have their marches as well you know which are far more intimidating.
Not exactly a cultural thing though is it..

It's a few fat yobs playing dress up.. fairly lame equivocation

I see that the leisure centre bonfire was evacuated due to a 'suspicious device' and respected journalist jamie bwyson was issued a death threat 'by republican elements', who also left the 'suspicious device'. Dogwhistle stuff to further whip up the base

I doubt there are nationalists east of the bann, theyve all gone to donegal/sligo since wednesday.

I'm sure there are farmers who are looking for pallets for putting under bales, turf etc, who wouldn't get them as easy. I'm sure all those pallets on the bonfire could be upcycled in some way.
