Bus torched in Belfast on sixth night of unrest in Northern Ireland
The loyalist gathering at Lanark Way was organised via social media, with Facebook posts shared on other platforms.
[...]
Since last Friday there has been nightly violence in parts of Northern Ireland, including in Belfast, Derry and parts of county Antrim, fuelled by loyalist anger over a recent decision not to prosecute Sinn Féin leaders over attendance at a mass funeral.

The DUP has expressed fury over the decision, with Foster, its leader, saying it reflects one rule for Sinn Féin and another for ordinary voters who have lost loved ones during the pandemic and have been unable to attend funerals.
[...]
[João Vale de Almeida, the EU ambassador to the UK] said the EU was "fully committed in a constructive way to find solutions for those problems" but it had to be "within the limits of the protocol that we have agreed not long ago".

'sinn fein made us do it!; How lame can one get? Take a look a Arline Foster's usual face and you can get an idea. She is being devoured by her own hatred - just not fast enough.

Concerns About Prosecutions of NI Veterans

Defence minister Johnny Mercer dismissed from government | The Guardian |

Mercer is particularly unhappy about a series of looming trials of British army veterans dating back to the time of the Troubles - although his position has exasperated colleagues in government.

Next week, two former members of the parachute regiment, known only as Soldier A and Soldier C, who are both in their 70s, are to go on trial for the murder of the Official IRA commander Joe McCann in Belfast in 1972.
