Sure there isn’t a speaker of the Northern Ireland assembly? Tbh this shouldn’t be allowed then you’d see how quick the dup would nominate a speaker.

I disagree, SF are playing a blinder. Let the DUP and Unionists have their days of mourning. The moral high ground is were this battle will be won.

And you all know my views on SF!

I agree. You know full well the next fortnight's going to be full of all manner of pomp and ceremony and hand-wringing. You're not going to stop it, there's no point in giving out about it. It'll all be back to business as usual soon enough, so let them tear away.

We used to have orange parades past our house all the time, and our approach was to just shut the curtains and never let on we saw them. It was all over in a minute or two and nobody passed any remarks. The protestant neighbours stood out and watched it, the fenians all stayed indoors and carried on washing the dishes, making a sandwich, or whatever it was we were doing at the time. Don't give them the satisfaction of any negative reaction.

There was an internal email sent round warning them to behave themselves.

Fully agree. Thr whole Bonfire thing every year would soon go away. If they were ignored for a few years  the bonfires would dramatically reduce in size and probably numbers.

"Before the service, the King will meet leaders from all the major faiths in Northern Ireland."

Presumably this includes Armagh fans who believe that Armagh deserve at least 3 all Stars.

They have made a distinction between memorials for the deceased Queen and those involving the new King. This seems relatively wise.
