Orange Order Slams Decision

The Orange Order has slammed the Parades Commission's decision to re-route a contentious loyalist parade in west Belfast this Saturday.

The Whiterock parade normally passes through a security gate in the main Falls/Shankill "peaceline", but the commission has ruled that it should use a gate on Workman Avenue this year instead.

The ruling obliges marchers to use new roads built on the site of a disused factory, something the Orange Order has described as totally unacceptable.


What's the problem? Is the fun taken away from these marches when nationalists are not subjected to the triumphalism on display? The Orange Order are a joke.
