Is permission not needed for protests?

Published 29/01/2013 | 08:00

Can the same people who are clearing the footpaths of bricks, stones and broken glass after the riots please clear the snow off them, too?

Also: how come I had to ask the Parades Commission for permission to hold a fundraising bedpush in Belfast, but others don't need any permission at all to march on the streets and block roads?
