MTV makes me wanna smoke crack


according to Grand Master Secretary of the Orange Order Drew Nelson the recent civil disorder (recreational rioting) is the fault of MTV.
“My analysis is that these young people, what they think is cool and socially acceptable they don’t take their lead from the Orange Order or the churches or the traditional organisations, but they take it from the media, they take it from people like MTV.”
With Belfast hosting the prestigious MTV awards in November there are a few issues over the drink licensing laws that means a new venue has to be found for the after party.
It remains to be seen how “robust” the response to on street drinking will be this 12th
