Price of parade prevarication

Yet again, issues that count are dropped to the bottom while Assembly members prevaricate on parading. MLAs, Orangemen and affected citizens deny the greater section of the community who want elected representatives to work on bread-and-butter issues. Surely the time has arrived to ban parades. They cause conflict and destruction for which the taxpayer picks up the bill.
