And don't forget that many of these shows of culture receive taxpayers funding.

We are paying for these hate fests.

Lads and ladies don’t be fooling yourselves.

If there was even 3 pallets stacked on top of each other in West Belfast or the Bogside and it was decided by the authorities to get rid of them,

the full weight of the British war machine would be brought to bear down on it.

Air land sea total 360 degrees solution.

Including mass civilian casualties if felt required by the “top brass”.

Then denial and deflection for 30-50 years until the truth comes out

Plus ça change....

Same sh1t different day

The bonfires are a bit stupid and are obviously an attempt to thumb the nose at the government and the other side. But it's much better than actual terrorism.

I'd be much happier if this is the way people blow off steam a few times a year rather than being ready for war

The English really knew what they were doing dumping them over here, they're like some bunch that were brought in from Europe for some war or other in the Middle Ages and then they became surplus to requirements. The prods from my neck of the woods tend to be very insular, but they have some sense of balance about them.

Hyperbole aside, I don't think that's true. The government treats both sides with kid gloves. Just look at all the smuggling thru allow at the border. Keeping those people away from violence is a priority.

Of course he should have. The team should have a bit of cop on. Respect is a two way street.

It's great their employers give them the time off to build the tower of pallets.

Someone earlier referred to how these people in East Belfast etc are ignored by unionist politicians but how same politicians pander to them via silence regarding bonfires

You have to remember that loyalists are a people who want very little, they want to slag off their neighbours religion and emblems but that's all that they want.

It's a similar situation to how the republican party in America pander to the southern trailer park voter demographic via nods to the bible etc while sending their jobs to China

To further the point, the southern red necks are Scots Irish
