Hanna almost caramelized…

SOUTH Belfast Assembly member Carmel Hanna (SDLP) was stoned by loyalists as she arrived for a TV interview at a bonfire site today. Loyalists in some areas of Belfast have decided in their wisdom to repeat their disastrous policy of creating rubbish dumps on green spaces between the months of March and July. The City Council has already said will remove its £2,500 support from any group that ignores the guidelines laid down to receive funding for more acceptable forms of burning stuff – let’s see if it happens. The expense of the clean-up seems to be even driving some unionists to promote alternative forms of celebration – largely, it would seem, based on the nationalist example. Loyalist Feile, anyone?
