William Scholes: 'Orange Order betrayed by Belfast hooligans'

Newton Emerson wrote in the Irish News of January 2 2014:

"The Haass talks failed because the DUP would not sign up to a legally binding code of conduct for parades."

He continued:

"In August 2014 Sinn Fein's IRA parade in Castlederg aped the worst aspects of the loyal orders to deliberately challenge unionism with the moral (or immoral) equivalence. Castlederg would have breached any code of conduct many times over and unionism could have sold a code to its voters on that basis."


"Instead, it appears that the DUP's priority is to continue humouring the worst excesses of the loyal orders, whatever the wider cost."
