  2. While it is intensely irritating that these terrorist organisations should so pretensiously parade their past activities the memorials in question are very muted and in a reasonably secluded place in comparison with the prolific memorials to republican terrorists.
    Some of those memorials are very public and are excessively agressive and intimidating. Many are on busy main roads and in villages where the families of the victims have to pass them regularly while the memorials and tributes to innocents and to the security forces have to be hidden away to avoid malicious damage.
    And it is unlikely that planning permission has been sought for any of them.
    It is a pity that any of these - the memorials lauding the activities of criminals that is - are so blatantly displayed. However as we permitted one group to do this then we can hardly stop others.

    They're cheeky barstewards. What makes me chortle is the fact that they call themselves "D Coy". Ironic

    As a side note, as they're volunteers, do you think they're on stand-down for the next six months aswell?
