So this is one of the side effects of the " glorious twalfth " :rolleyes: Are they complete Neanderthals or what - Fire crews had to attend a total of 1,352 incidents at bonfire sites between May and July in 2009, at a cost of £894,076. Data for the 2010 parading season has not yet been disclosed it was reveladed by SDLP's Thomas Burns.

"Ferrell youths sit around on old sofas drinking, lighting small fires, setting fire to rival bonfires and generally causing bother into the early hours of the morning." And the unionists call this ' culture ' ? :eek:

Peanuts compared to the tems of millions it will cost the UK to host Benny ....

Taxpayers should not fund Pope's visit, says survey

The cost of the trip to UK taxpayers, previously estimated at £8m, could rise to between £10m and £12m.
The Catholic Church is also expected to make a contribution of between £9m and £10m towards the costs,
which do not include an expected multi-million pound bill for policing the visit.

In Downpatrick a beacon incased in steel was used on the 11th. No problems and no impact on peoples rights to celebrate their culture.

So the cost of one visit by the Pope equals the cost of three or four Orange Ramadan celebrations. The Pope doesn't visit the UK every 3-4 years.

It's up to Northern Irish taxpayers to put an end to these outrageous costs. It's their money that's being (in some cases literally) pissed down the drain.

Putting things into perspective.

The 11th night is not illegal and is an activity by UK residents.

However the UK taxpayer will be spending a vast amount of money on the visit of the foreign head of one of the largest and richest organisations,
with all sorts of criminal associations, in the world.
lol

UK residents and UK taxpayer ? :lol: 90% of that public spending in the north is financed by the English taxpayer. It's no wonder the English find you organies more reprehensible than we do !!!

Today I was down protesting against Blair's book signing in Easons. Mrs Windsor is unfortunetly supposed to visit us next year. Both events will cost us quite a considerable sum of money in security etc. Still I wouldn't compare them to the unionist ' culture ' of " Ferrell youths sit around on old sofas drinking, lighting small fires, setting fire to rival bonfires and generally causing bother into the early hours of the morning."
