the cops don't deserve any credit for this. Court order, being removed by external contractors. Cops forced belatedly to do their duty

Cops do what they are told, so if they are told to take it down they will! Cops deserve credit though in this situation as they’ll be attacked by the rug rats. Police don’t form policies they just carry them out? I assume
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Any farmers having their own "bonfires" tonight?

Down our way we have on on the Eve of St. John's.  Fr one night only Council and Guards turned a blind eye to burning.  We did a clear out of the barn and burnt it all.   One lad was away that week and he was suggesting we start marking the Glorious Twelfth as well so that he could do the same.

Mind you ia bit of burning down a field is a far cry from the towering infernos in built up areas that you see up yer way.

They are getting a lot of flak from the "loyalist" community for heavy handedness and claiming they aren't doing the same in the bogside. They reckon hamilton should resign and the ruc need to come back. You couldn't make it up.

This one in Highfield isn't exactly what you'd call subtle. Attacking victims and saying Kill all Taigs.

It's not even fecking straight the t**ts.

Here's on that was burnt in Killinchy last night. Apparently open to anyone who wanted to show up. No flegs, no SF/SDLP/Alliance posters, no KAT banners. Reasonable size and no tyres.

If they were all like this there wouldn't be any issue with them having the bonfires.

It is the same with the marches too. A lot of the country ones not that bad but some of the belfast ones and a few others are just hate and bigotry.

It baffles me how stupid these people can be. They are wrecking their own areas and putting locals out of their houses, at a minimum temporarily, with these monstrosities. I think it is like the flags and some idiots seem to be being convinced that bigger is more british.

We could be in for a difficult night.

I would guess that rural bonfires will pass off without incident but some of these urban efforts don’t need the obvious dangers pointed out. All of this in the context of the pressure the fire service is under the efforts of the scum bags active in the Bogside all point in a worrying direction
