One of the things King Billy fought against was the divine right of Kings which is the right of the king to make up the law to suit himself. And Trump with his presidential pardon is aiming for something similar. We are living in a very strange time.

Are they a dying breed? They probably are.  I was on Sash Watch last night viewing the highlights to see could I recognize anyone. But what stood out for me was a lot of the interviewees were at pains to point out the growth in the number of lodges as if to give the impression that all was healthy in the OO this may not be the case.

Take the bands out of the equation and you will see the number of Lol Ďwalkersí and you will see the numbers dwindling each year.

Agreed that the number of walkers seems to be dwindling I seen some LOLs have about half a dozen or so behind the banner on the flip side Ballyveagh (Kilkeel) had some 240 behind their banner.
However a lot of the band members would also be OO members but a lot don't wear their regalia while playing in the band although some do this would put a more realistic view of the membership numbers of the OO if they all wore sashes.

Not far from me there are two OO halls that are about a mile from one another on the same road - both are currently being renovated/extended probably from the "community" funding promoted by the  DUP former minister of DCAL. There are probably more of these projects underway but the close proximity of these two stood out for me

The video of the wee toe rag throwing the petrol bomb at the windscreen of a passing random van was pretty bad. Quite literally could have killed a random innocent guy going about his daily business. It absolutely wouldn't be ok regardless of who he was throwing it at but to do so in the bogside means it was very likely it was another nationalist. Absolute whoopers.

Is the Derry stuff co-ordniated or is it just a shower of wee b**tards off school with little else to do?

The Belfast Telegraph used to go with a standard "100,000 walk" headline every year.

Big time. Pictures going around last year of bonfires with union jacks and DUP posters on them. Fecking idiots don't seem to realise that by doing that you immediately lose any high ground you have.

They wouldn't give two f**ks about losing high ground.  Quite frankly they wouldn't know what the high ground is.  They simply haven't a clue and are only too glad to act out being scumbags at the behest of dissidents.  They couldn't tell you why they are doing even if they tried.

Aye you're not wrong at all man. It's just so counter productive that it's obvious that they don't know what they're doing at all.
