Twadell deal shapes up at last (but WTF kept youse?)

One of the massively frustrating aspects of the parading problem in North Belfast has been is just how arch and false the whole thing has been. Well, if Fresh Start means anything to real people in a real space it may just mean a whole bunch of pointless street trouble is coming to an end:

An agreement has been reached between the Orange Order and the nationalist residents’ group CARA that will allow Orangemen to march along the contested route past Ardoyne.

The troubles weren’t great for people either side of the ironically named Alliance Avenue a name that seemed more taunt on more than one occasion. But, finally (22 years after the ceasefires), there’s a promise people can go back to treating neighbours as humans again.
