PSNI or Parades Commission?

Published 25/02/2013

The Orange Order has said it may no longer give police notice of parades.

Having observed the way in which the PSNI has facilitated and escorted the loyalist flag protesters, without a Parades Commission ruling, as they blocked roads, marched into Belfast city centre, intimidated those who opposed them, used physical force and hurled sectarian abuse as they passed nationalist enclaves, why would they?

Is there any need for a Parades Commission? The PSNI appears to have taken over that role.
