It is clear, even from the photograph in your newspaper on Monday, that some participants in Saturday’s Belfast Pride parade acted in an offensive and provocative manner towards those who were staging a protest at City Hall.

If participants in an Orange parade had engaged in similar behaviour towards nationalist protestors, I suspect the Parades Commission would be asking questions.
