Scotland votes: Orange Order wrong to get involved in independence debate

ONCE again the Orange Order in Northern Ireland are trying to stick their noses in where they are not wanted by taking part in a parade in Edinburgh to tell the people of the Kingdom of Scotland that they should vote against independence.

Presumably then the Orange Order in Northern Ireland have never had a problem with anybody from outside Northern Ireland making suggestions on how our affairs could be run better.

For example, none of them had any problem when an American recently suggested that a new flag for Northern Ireland could help to improve things.

Oh, hang on a minute. I think most of the members did have a problem with this, didn't they?
