Portadown loyalists like to get their bigotry in first.

There is nothing glorious about that backwater anniversary up there each July.
An annual shïtshow, anyone with any sense would avoid the place or get out of there. And to think people seriously considering having anything to do with the pondlife up there.

The will is not there to dismantle them from law enforcement either,

Why cant they dismantle under armed police as soon as building starts, go back everyday or multiple times per day to
dismantle, these things take weeks to build I'm guessing, wheres the will to prevent its building in the first place.

I think we're never going to reach a proper complete settlement of the differences in the north EVER !

Not sure what you're on about there, the army dismantling bonfires? maybe during the Troubles ..... Anyway, the army aren't patrolling estates anymore, as the terrorists threat is minimal.

Never could understand the bonfires on the 12th though, it's steeped in the history and tradition of one of the two big tribes! Seems very important to them.

Someone should tell them what the ORANGE part of the tricolour stands for. The clue is in the name. I actually think we should abandon the tricolour as a flag, it's meaningless and made up and clearly is lost on the very people it's supposed to include.

I never said the army were patrolling estates but there is still an army presence in the north. So if the fire service say there is a serious risk surely the council have a responsibility to get it dismantled one way or the other.

Thanks. I thought my calendar was ****ed.
12 posts in before correction?

And I don't get the yogurt sleight either. It has a lot of culture. We are going to need a better analogy.

Highlights from previous years include seeing a motorist driving into gathered crowds. (repeatedly)
