I have a wedding that day and I have bought the brightest orange tie I could find, I'm expecting one of my cousins to turn up in an orange suit.

Those bonfire pyres did not go up overnight. The authorities should have dismantled them early on, as soon as the size they would become was apparent. They're out in the open FFS. The fact they did nothing tells you everything you want to know about what's wrong with that part of the world

one solution (if it can be done) is to fine any business who hand pallets out to these knob heads. Some kind of system were the business pays to get them and recieves a refund when they are returned needs to be put in place. Any business that gives them out is basically burning cash.

Sadly taking pallets out of circulation won't help, they'll just burn other materials (tyres and construction waste)

If businesses don’t hand them over they would have a bonfire in their own yards

Tyres are not used now due to the climate emergency

I think it was in Lisburn one time the loyalists had a massive pile with tricolours ,pictures of the Pope etc all set to go and a few boys snuck in a few nights before the 12th and torched it.Nobody got to enjoy it except a few firemen!

The fear of being gradually outnumbered grows for Loyalist Unionists every year sure.

It appears that some companies are handing over the tyres to the bonfire builders to avoid paying the fee for tyre disposal.

the knob heads on the other side will soon be building their bonfires to mark the anniversary of internment - one apes the other

But do they deliberately try to March through loyalist areas playing republican tunes and chanting sectarian slogans?
