Orange (finally) realise it’s good to talk

The Orange Order, fresh from the hammer blow delivered by former leading light Rev. Brian Kennaway, have announced that they recently held meetings with the Irish Government. Further meetings with the SDLP are on the way- though not with Sinn Fein, apparently because of their attitude to violence…..
Whilst the Order are selling the talks as part of their strategy to remove the Parades Commission, the Order may be just beginning to realise how far they will have to travel to gain the trust and confidence of nationalists which will be vital to any future parading resolution across the north of Ireland.
