Two Houses Gutted By Loyalist Culture in Belfast.

A row of terraced houses caught fire close to one of the huge loyalist bonfires in the name of culture. Two homes adjacent to the Hopewell Square bonfire in Belfast's Shankill Road were gutted when a blaze broke out on the roofs of the terrace at around 1am. At least one other house was damaged. The stupid home owners should have known better when buying their house and that the lower Shankill is a cultural haven where even bricks and mortar won't get in the way of unionist culture and 11th night fun!

The total number of call-outs received by the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service overnight was up on last year.
Of the 123 calls between 9pm and 1am, 42 were bonfire-related. At 16 of those callouts, firefighters had to actively intervene.

If only they had have listened to the advice of a unionist caller to Talkback last year. Common sense would dictate that houses simply shouldn't be built next to bonfire sites. It's like an airport.

Last year, homes near Chobham Street in east Belfast had to be evacuated over fears that the giant nearby bonfire could topple on to property. Tyres have been brought in by the UVF form Britain provide an extra sense of smell to the celebrations. What bonfire worth it's salt would be complete without the whiff of Pirelli's finest.

Don't fret homeless people of the Shankill. William of Orange was celebrated in style and the beats were parful! Maybe next year they could actually use the shell of your house for the pit. Good times.

Here's the video of the houses being burnt down.

Last year we saw an attempted murder by an Orange man- we could see a repeat of that this year. The day isnt over yet.

Pretty lame, petty, mean-spirited, and spiteful OP. The schadenfreude you are revelling in is pretty pathetic. For all you know the householders in this case may have been totally opposed to such "celebrations" but now find themselves homeless, and you think it's hilarious. Shame on you.

They often are. I blame the firemen for letting it happen.

No you are being unjust- he was essentially making a point for those from the ROI who consider BtB and Cruimh perfectly acceptable characters despite their avid support for the bullying and self destructive Loyalist "culture" (which is distinct from Ulster Protestant culture as such).

You silly little ******************************. Families are homeless because of unionists acting like depraved w*nkers. Time and time and time again these dicks have been warned about this. I have full sympathy for those people left homeless by unionist culture. People are afraid to stand up to these balloons, but don't worry, so long as you dealt with the anonymous loner in your first reply...all is good.

FYI

Anyway, to use the bonfire example, some people around the north will have to put up with nationalist louts from their 'own area' and beyond wrecking it in the name of 'republicanism'. Pathetically built bonfires will be set ablaze with stolen UDA, UVF rags as well as the union flag. The same as the 11th night celebrations I hear you say. However, it's not and this is the crux of the matter regards false equivalencies. 95% of the people in these nationalist areas don't want such bonfires. It's a magnet for anti-social behaviour, a drinking party with drugs, front and back yards being turned into temporary toilets. My parent's house is affected by this every year in Belfast, so that's the first hand evidence of this.

It's far from culture you were reared, Bill.

Wasn't something like this always going to happen? Where else in the western world would a few people be allowed to endanger the homes of people in such a fashion? The local politicians bottle it every year. Not only bottle it, but actively fund this nonsense.

Does some family have to die first before common sense takes hold? Oh wait, three children were burned alive, but the OO are still around.

Let NI eat itself alive. Why should anyone outside of it care?

REF,
Another blatant lie, how come he hasn't been charged with attempted murder then.
The only thing he could be charged with is parking on a double yellow line.

Let's play a game?

How many metres is Jim Allister's house from a bonfire?
How many metres is Mike Nesbitt's house from a bonfire?
How many metres is Arlene's house from a bonfire?
How many bottles of WKD can they drink?

From you link:

s now reported that DSD paid £10k for protective measures in Chobham Street and that 30 firemen were kept on site to stop the local 'community' burning down their neighbours houses.

Who authorised all this public money to wasted to placate these thugs? The fire was on a DSD site so why wasn't it removed or made safe?

At a time of austerity this is scandalous and the Treasury will doubtless be aware that waste like this utterly undermines any suggestion of concessions for NI
