Was anyone else disturbed by the sight of the Orange Lodge/military style band, whatever they were, on yesterday's march?

A friendly jazz band or colliery brass band to accompany the marchers is one thing, but that tribal, drum beating mob looked very hostile to me.

Who were they?

Thank goodness in London we don't usually see this sort of thing.

The Orange marchers don't perform in this way !

Well I hope they've returned to Scotland by now.

They're not something we would tolerate here!

Orange walks bring trouble every where they go.Its the "norm" why they weren't banned decades ago is a mystery .
Of course they feel entitled now because of the Tory DUP links .What a shame you have to add them to your usual brand of right wing thugs down south .

I don't think they'll make too many appearances in London - well I'm hoping so. Quite menacing.

I thought they were Orange marchers?
