City Council-sponsored bonfire at City Hospital

One of the twelve loyalist bonfires being sponsored collectively to the tune of £24,000 in Belfast has been located in the grounds of Belfast City Hospital’s new car parking site. There have also been reports of loyalists intimidating workers on the site after UFF flags erected from cranes were removed. Loyalists have also erected what can only be described as a 20-foot makeshift sangar at the entrance to the hospital, while local entrepreneurs, no doubt with an eye on that £3.3 million prize, have painted a new mural for the occasion complete with ATAT (All Taigs are Targets) heading and crosshairs, with one of said targets in the middle. Can’t see this bonfire attracting cross-community support any time soon….
