The sheer size of this one. I don't know how they manage to get them built so high with work and everything to go to.

I believe they remove the Union Jacks prior to combustion, but replace them with the flag of the dastardly Ivory Coast.



Take that Côte d'Ivoire!

They remove the union jack. Not all of them burn the tricolor. Many do though.

Shortly after nationalists have anti internment memorial marches etc.

The PSNI also have the Ombudsman looking over their shoulders, so whatever they do be assured it's closely monitored.
Theyare largely let do what they want though lets be honest.

If they were any way serious about removing it at all, they'd have the army in doing it.

Maybe if direct rule is implemented after Oct, one of the very first things the Brits will do is outlaw hate organisations such as the orange order, and ban bonfires and such that incite religious intolerance or hatred.

Can you imagine the English tolerating the same craic going on around Bradford or Birmingham by Islamic extremists where they burned effigies, spreading their hatred and threatening and menacing everyone and anyone who tried to interfere?

That would be some irony.

To an extent - yeah, but they also don't hold any outdated romanticism thoughts on the place either.

Look at SSM, Abortion etc.

Yeah, that's culture NI style.

I've noticed this. They have no talent for anything else. You have to admit though they do this well.

One wonders if the Orange Order sucks up all the music talent there.
