With the removal of two of them today in Belfast and the news that 3 different unionist politicians has come out against some of the charade, things seem to be changing for the better. Pity the hoods in Derry wouldn't cop on as well. Good to see all the main parties condemn that as well.

This time of year things are contentious. I think the likes of nolan really stirs things up and questions need to be asked about his show. He gives that waste of space bryson air and he is trying to make this like the flag protests. People are stupid enough to listen to him. Oppressing culture my arse.

Strange to read these comments as bonfires are alien to us down in the west of the province. Used to be one in omagh years ago I think

Iím from Strabane, it was alien to me too but now live in north Belfast with helicopters flying overhead at 11pm on 11th night and an alarm set for 7.30am on a bank holiday to get the heck out of here and across the border ASAP.

Helicopters put me to sleep growing up! Nothing like a light shining in from their beam to keep you company! And that wasnít one night a year :o

People are made of lesser stuff nowadays!

Was out in the garden there tonight and you could hear the pipe bands.
They were playing 'Its a Long Way to Tipperary' which I thought was strange,
Although the next tune sounded awful like 'Off to Dublin in the Green' - maybe its my hearing.

That long way to Tipp was a British army song from WW1.
The annual knuckledragging hatefest in full swing.
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.
