Texas A&M university used to hold a large bonfire rally for their students and football supporters
In 1999 it collapsed during construction and 12 students were killed

It's only a matter of time before something similar happens somewhere in NI

As the Sex Pistols said "and we don't care". So long as Mervyn Gibson & wee Seamy Bryson are among the casualties.

Yeah over the top. Bryson is a blight on society  - mainly the people he claims to support. Crawls out every July and for some reason seems to be under the delusion that he is intelligent. An odious human being (though I wouldn’t wish what the last poster wished on him on anyone)

But for Stephen Nolan giving him a platform, Bryson would have faded away after the fleg protest failed, but Nolan gave him all the air-time he wanted.   Can you imagine David Dunseith allowing him to spout his poisonous bile?  He put down bigots from both sides within a few  seconds of them piping up.

Dunseith was a master on the airways and a thorough gentleman by all accounts I ever heard. The reality is that the likes of Nolan are thrash tv/radio and love the shock value. The whole concept of the 12th and Britishness etc is a joke the way it is celebrated. It is a chest pumping, triumphalist celebration of how one side beat the other and given that one side is still here it is very very divisive. Also, it’s comical. I was driving along the Shore Road the other day just up from the Grove and they were putting up bunting with the RAF flag on it...like seriously!!!  When did these arseholes ever have a job never mind become pilots for the RAF.....tally-ho old boy....chocks away Jeeves!  Jesus wept!

The thing is the houses burning down, assuming they were evacuated as quite a few are, wouldn’t make them bat an eyelid. What was it pengelly said - that is what insurance is for. You couldn’t
make it up.

There was an excerpt of that William Crowley show from bbc put on Twitter by lad. Some boy called in giving off that there was nothing wrong with the bonfires. When he was told about the fire brigade dousing houses down he said - no one asked the fire brigade to do this.

When Crowley pushed him to ask did he think that was an acceptable use of the fire services time his reply was "sure what else would they be doing anyway". I mean where else would you get it. There is no reasoning or having a sensible debate with someone like that and this mentality is far from simply a small minority.

Where do they get the pallets anyway and who pays for them?  Pallets are £5+ a pop and they’re not tatty, broken ones getting thrown away by the look of it.  Some of these bonfires must have 1000 or more new pallets on them.

Aye, I heard that nut. He was told the wind changed direction last year in Belfast and burned roofs of houses, and could happen again. But that didn’t seem to compute with him. Sure it’s no bigger than last year, seemed to be his argument.

But I laughed at his line on the fire brigade. Jesus, it’s like dealing with toddlers.

There will have to be some legislation brought in or the "heroes" will be able to do whatever they want.  They can be built in certain specific areas which meet a set of requirements.  The law can surely include height restrictions, non acceptable contents, banning the burning of effigies etc.  Some of them are completely out of control.  What will it take before action is taken? has someone to die in a fall from a great height, or from a collapsing inferno, before action is taken?

Could have used their savings that they’ve made as a result of their new wood chip burners.

Like with Drumcree protest in 1998 when 3 young lads were burnt to death in their beds. Sadly, it’s going to take something like that to make everyone cop to f**k on.
