this is a pic is of a bonfire on shankill road belfast taken on saturday - ready for tonights 'celebrations', it's massive in that photo, imagine how massive it will be by tonight.
message on the side reads ' if calsburg built bonfires they'd probably build this one'

Haven't the Govt. donated a hundred grand to transform this very special day of belligerant posturing and sectarian violence from the Orange Order into (I'm not making this up) a 'family fun day'?

Somehow don't think they're onto a winner with this one...

That looks more like 'Family kill a Taig day' to me. Not exactly the common definition of fun (unless I'm missing something...)?

On BBC N.I. last night, they managed to find a Brazilian on the rainy streets of Belfast - it always rains on the twelfth, no matter what its like the rest of the week - who said 'in Brazil we have carnival; this is a bit different, but the same idea' - I doubt if Brazilian TV goes looking for stray orangemen during in carnival to make the reverse comparison.
