Bonfire for their vanities

This is a brilliant idea. Gold! Why didn't they think of it before? Let's quell the tension in Northern Ireland that's existed for over 300 years by giving Loyalist areas a grant of £1500 to finance a street party with inflatables for the kids and candy floss so long as they agree to burn environmentally friendly bonfires instead of the 50ft ones they usually burn along with Irish flags and Celtic tops.

If there's one thing can bring a divided community, who have been fighting each other over something that happened centuries ago, together, it's inflatable slides and willow 'beacons'. It's a metaphor you see, Beacon of hope.

Of course, it's all well and good banning the burning of flags and Paramilitary displays in order to suppress sectarian tensions, but it doesn't really mean an awful lot when just next to the row of inflatable slides and candy floss machines there's a 30ft freakin' mural depicting a Loyalist gunman and celebrating the sterling work of the UDU, UFF and UDA.
