Orange Order Rejects DUP-SF Parades Legislation

The Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland has definitively rejected the Draft Legislation on Parades proosed by a joint SF- DUP working group in the wake of the Hillborough negotiations earlier this year. The decision ensures that the Parades Commission, which the Order refuses to even meet, will be reappointed for a further year.

The news is a severe embarrassment for the DUP which put so much emphasis on securing the abolition of the Parades Commission in return for agreeing the devolution of Policing and Justice powers to Stormont.

UTV News - Orange Order rejects Parades Bill

When will unionist politiicans learn that the Orange Order is a beast that cannot be appeased?

LOL - classic. The Nationalist idea of democracy - you elect people then you obey their orders.
So explain, how is it 'democracy in action'? Who was eligble to vote?

The Orange Order survive on the siege mentality. Not an inch. Does it really matter whether they agree or not?

Im more than aware of that. However, those words would be better directed at the Orange Order, who live with they're heads in the sand.

Democracy in action?

Are you being sarcastic?

The two largest parties who have an elected mandate try to find a solution to the Orange Order taking control of the streets in the summer.

The OO which has no mandate, refuses to accept the will of the people as expressed through their elected representitives and through the democratic vote, and will carry on regardless.

The OO isn't interested in democracy, only the 17th century where it will live forever until the world around it modernises so much that its members become obsolete.

It's a horrible nasty organisation that wants to cause as much trouble as possible while still being able to spin it around on others and wash its hands of all the hastle it creates.
Failing that we should demand they pay road tax for the removal of main transport routes and access to city centres during the summer months.

Send them into big open fields where the rest of the civilised world reinact their war fantasies in silly costumes.

I certainly did, the Orange Order should keep its medieval trap shut and obey whatever legislation is slapped on it by the peoples representitives.
It's not above the law, it refused to even engage in a replacement even though it was crying about the parades commission not letting it trample over the Taigs enough.

Trouble makers, you know what you do with unreasonable trouble makers?
Force them to accept legislation and abide by it or face the inside of a court like everyone else.

Sigh - once again when in trouble another nationalist poster resorts to talking about taigs.

How is the Orange Order be medieval st333ve ?

It was formed in the 18th century - and the reformation occurred after the medieval period ended .....

Thats open to debate.

The Reformation was a revolt of "medieval" inwardness against the Reinassance. Something that should not be forgotten...Martin Luther was very much a man of Middle Ages.

Middle ages ended 15th century

Reformation - 16th century.

In fact it was boasted by Dr James Devane some 60 odd years ago

"Ireland is the most Catholic country in the world. Perhaps the Republic of Ireland, as it is constituted today, is the only integral Catholic State in the world; a Catholic culture as it existed in the Middle Ages."

What made the Middle Ages end? How can we draw a line between them and what followed?

What defines the Middle Ages?

Catholic culture are it existed in the Middle Ages definitely did not exist in Ireland 60 years ago.

What can I say? It's always been many centuries behind everyone else.
In the 18th century it was probably meeting in a cave trying to work out how to create fire with 2 sticks.

The OO is a gathering of normal civilians, (loosely speaking)
A civilian has no right to decide that legal legislation does not apply to them, the Orange Order is no different.
Just because you have not evolved does not mean you should not adhere to modern law.

Given that that boast was made when both Franco's Spain and more importantly Salazar's Portugal existed is more than proof that he was either a loon or drunk when he made that statement...Why not try to understand the bigger picture rather than trawling for quotes to feed your predjudices??

Sorry forgot..."My community...blah, blah, blah..."
