Seen yesterday 2000 tyres had been removed from one fire. This says everything about the crowd of knuckledraggers who build and organize these bonfires.
Saying that on a smaller scale the same happens on the 23rd of June in my area,used to be a religious day celebrated by small bonfires at night, but unfortunately now the knuckledraggers have taken that over and it's a night to burn your rubbish and use black oil and tyres for the black smoke affect. To which I may add the local council don't want to know.

I'd prefer to listen to that appliances ad with Deirdre O'Kane on loop than listen to a parade of fücking flute bands.

At least in the nationalist areas we have the delights of overweight dirtbirds with berets and sunglasses marching along out of step with a packet of John Player Blue and the Mirror in the arse pocket

Try going to bed with it coming in the windows at 11pm, then waking up with it coming in the windows at 7am. Take a break lads!

This morning an article about speeding penalty points and inability of the Gardai to enforce something as simple as motoring offences.
The current rate of TV licence evasion remains at a staggering 265,000 residents in this State, despite or as a result of cringe worthy radio advertising.

What chance of Mary Lou's all Ireland Government dealing with the Loyalist extremists? Presumably not by the previous method.

Or will the tolerant population of this island put up with anything?

There is a crisis in so many areas in the State as it is. I can't imagine what my tax rate would be if the North was to be under the "control" of Dail Eireann.

Let the Taxpayer in Britain pay ad infinitum.

Totally bizarre. It really is pathetic to burn the Irish flag and takes the wind out of their sails by saying it's a 'cultural event' - a 'cultural event' where hate is at the core.

Crazy listening to the awful songs being played as well. All about WW1, WW2 etc. Pathetic. These guys are completely stuck in the past.

Jesus that's a huge claim. I'll just about agree with it. Just.

Look we can hear a rebel song from time to time in Ireland, no doubt. But I'm not aware of anything comparable to this, and certainly not as a cornerstone event on the calendar.

As far as I can make out, these lads have two big 'cultural events' and both antagonize the community:

1. Building massive, dangerous, environmentally unfriendly bonfires while burning Irish material and playing sectarian music

2. Military style Marching through areas where they disturb and disrupt their neighbours

It's pure facism.

More often than not it's pure idiocy as well. Its a worship of 'hardman/hardwoman' culture.

When the Confederate Flag isn't seen as the most controversial one, you've an issue.

Despite flying an actual Swastika, they fly the Israeli flag too. Absolute knuckle-dragging troglodytes.

Imagine it being the center point of your year though. That's a seriously depressing outlook on life.

Such cowardice in the UK when it comes to dealing with what is quite clearly sectarian aggression.

I know. Its because nationalists fly Palestinian flags or else nationalists fly Palestinian flags just because unionists fly Israeli flags.

The only thing that unites them is that both of those idiots hate jews and muslims if they are honest.
