“serves nobody’s interests.. apart from the interests of the crazies”

The BBC briefly reports the restrictions on this year’s 12 July parade as it returns past the Ardoyne shops (I haven’t located the actual ruling yet Parades Commission determination here) and adds:

“In the past, there have been disturbances in the area surrounding contentious parades.”

Hmm.. the Irish Times’ Gerry Moriarty’s eye-witness account of those disturbances last year are worth recalling: “What happened at Ardoyne was as bitter, ugly and raw as you can imagine”
