The marching season, riots and portaloos


Efforts to bring Northern Ireland into the “mainstream of politics”, as David Cameron envisaged, clearly have a long way to go.

But we should all be grateful for blogs. Blogs allow us greater access to insight like this, SDLP MLA Conall McDevitt’s very reasonable complaint at how the Orange Orders mismanage their proud celebrations of tradition/blatant sectarian provocations.

A lack of portaloo provision is part of the problem. This is the sort of thing that could surely get sorted out in a reasonable way without raising tired old arguments about the Battle of the Boyne etc.
