Orange parade clashes continue
watch listen Monday, 13 July 2009 22:08

The stand off between police and republican youths in Ardoyne in North Belfast is continuing.

Police have forced the youths back into the estates behind the interface. A hi-jacked van and car have been set alight at both entrances to the area.

Nah mate, the troubles aren't back - Just a few gobsheets stirring up. Always happens this time of year.

The troubles would be mass riots, hi-jackings, and a prime time slot on the telly :P

*BLEEDING OUTRAGED*

At the bottom of the article:

"Public money has been provided to help sell 'Orangefest' to an international audience and the growing number of tourists visiting Northern Ireland."

So part of my money has been used towards that carp? Ugh. Good for tourism I guess, but surely we can sell them something better >.<

It's about time the Irish grew up, forgot past differences and learned to live together harmoniously.

We laugh out loud to see those stupid, stupid men marching along in their bowler hats and fancy dress. And the other side are just as bigoted and closed-minded, rooted in the past.

Religion has much to answer for.

I simply cannot understand the mentality. I am on good terms with everyone in our street. I enjoy my beer with friends and casual acquaintances at the pub. But I have absolutely no idea what, if any, religion they are - neither do I care.

Yes because the 12th period is never tense...if you lived in Northern Ireland you would realise it is nothing like the years of the troubles.

Well said. Like I mention in my post, the sooner Ireland shakes off this ridiculous Protestant / Catholic split, the better for everyone.

if it was burnley or oldham, it'd be reported as world war 3. media coverage's been about right.

This thread rubs me up the wrong way - there are much better ways to get your obvious point across OP.

Look to be honest you have proved your lack of knowledge on NI issues on another thread you start. Saying this is like the Troubles is ridiculous there were certain events earlier in the year that have hightened tension but it is not like the days of the Troubles

My apologies if I have got it wrong.

My understanding is that the underlying unpleasantness is due to the schism between Protestants (epitomised by loyalist paramilitaries and the ridiculous Orange men in bowlers), who want to remain part of the UK, and the Catholics (championed by the IRA), who want union with the south.

Whatever, I am afraid that today's violence DOES appear serious from this side of the Irish Sea and does not reflect a society at peace with itself.

Again, apologies if I misunderstand the situation - and best wishes to a lovely part of the world.

Its not a lovely part of the world

I'm moving to Australia next month as this country is filled with unemployed thugs who fill their time by annoying and bringing back memories to the innocent working classes

This will never be fixed and the police get blamed for everything, not the yobs who we let out of prison a decade ago

Tensions will always run high here and especially when you have terrorists in government, everyone won't be happy

But it will prob never get back to as bad as it used to be

I'd rather move away from it all, as its embarrassing to be living here

I was referring to your wonderful scenery, coastal areas, fishing and some genuinely lovely people.

Good luck for the future. It's no consolation to you, but I know a few English people who have moved or are moving to Australia, to escape as England also goes down the pan . . .
