Jimmy C BS: Drumcree March Dead and Buried (67* d) RE: BS: DRUMCREE MARCH DEAD AND BURIED 17 Jul 05

The absence of the Drumcree March of shame can be attributed to one thing and one thing only. That is that many of the Orange Brethern are now realizing, perhaps for the first time that their "TIME IS UP". In other words there is not as many of them now as there once was, and they do not have the clout that they omce had. The realization that the day of a nationalist majority is coming and may not be too far away is making some of them come to their senses. I feel that many of them are waking up to the fact that if they want to live in N.Ireland then had better start mending fences before it is too late. There will be a few lodges in the future who may parade at Drumcree, but they will be Turf Lodge and the New Lodge. Personally I am glad to see this marching foolishness on the wane. It will be around for a long time still but it has lost it's meaning and it's bite. It really is time to sit down and talk like neighbours.
