Orange Order is a part of 21st century and it is here to stay


The arrogance which A Thompson displays towards the Orange Order parades (July 22) is nothing new from yet another liberal unionist, although the tens of thousands that attended and took part in the Twelfth parades might be a little upset at it being described as a fancy dress parade or a nuisance.

At the parade in Bushmills that I was proud to take part in, the streets where thronged with spectator’s of all ages.

Unfortunately for A Thompson, the liberal elite and republicans, we’re part of the 21st century and here to stay.
