Unionist say they do not want a permit system for bonfires. What would be their answer to the bonfire issue?

Here you go:
Under the new proposals the council wants to introduce a Bonfire Management Programme forcing organisers to
ensure that “no hazardous or toxic materials are collected, stored or burned”.
Organises will also have to ensure that “no flags, emblems or effigies are burned”.
A spokeswoman for the council last night said: “The proposals would mean that a bonfire will only be considered on council land where the organiser can demonstrate the event and site will be managed safely and where certain conditions are met, e.g. no hazardous or toxic materials are collected, stored or burned; no flags, emblems or effigies are burned.

Good decision by Mid Ulster Council to introduce a licensing scheme for bonfires. It was long overdue as anti social, sectarian, thuggish Loyalists were being allowed to wreck havoc against individuals, property and the environment with their medieval antics. It needed someone within authority to face this down and Mid Ulster Council has paved the way for others to follow. Of course the usual anarchists within PULism are bumping their gums, they don't accept democratic votes and have vowed not to abide by any new regulations. These usurpers of democracy must be faced down once and for all.

It depends it could be.

It could also be used as a means of knocking the rough edges off certain aspects of unionist culture. Just like fist fights were regularised into Queensbury Rules or how football was regularized into various codes. If someone is licensed then someone is responsible, they would have to explain why a certain effigy or symbols ended up on a bonfire, and it could be a good way of reducing the control of 'community leaders' in the process.

You start with the premise that PULism is reasonable, sensible and negotiable on these matters.......WRONG. It would be easier for Edward Scissor Hands to wipe his arse after 10 pints of Guinness, a vindaloo and 25 boiled eggs than knocking the rougher edges off certain aspects of 'Unionist culture'.
