Harbinson loses his latest ‘Alamo’…


AS expected, the Parades Commission has banned loyalist provocateur Mark Harbinson’s Pride of the Village Flute Band (see above) from entering two mixed areas of Stoneyford. The Commission noted that intimidated residents of Stonebridge Meadows and “that an illegal parade took place through Stonebridge Meadows and The Beeches on the evening of Tuesday 26th June 2007″. The determination continued: “The Commission is deeply disappointed that this incident occurred and may have a detrimental effect on community relations. The Commission notes that the original Form 11/1 was received on 17th March 2007 and a subsequent amended Form 11/1 was received on 27th June 2007. No reason was given for this late notification and the Commission is concerned that its submission may have been an attempt by the parade organiser to avoid the Commission’s condemnation of his illegal and unwelcome parade. On reflection therefore The Commission has taken the decision not to accept the amended Form 11/1 and has made its determination on the Form 11/1 received on 17th March 2007.”
