right i don't know if this is the right place to post this but i want to hear what you's all think about it! im from northern ireland and the RIR have just got back from afghanistan. they are having a home coming parade in belfast soon and Sinn Fien and other local republicans are organising a protest at it, because they say the blokes that have been out there for months don't deserve a home coming parade in their own country. they are going to be allowed within 40 feet of the soldiers and their families. i think this is a disgrace as the police have given their approval so the protest can go ahead and also every other regiment gets a parade in their own country without one of the local political parties, the ones who are meant to be in government protesting at it so why can't the RIR. well anyway sorry about the rant but its over now and i look forward to your replies!
