"only logical decision"

That was the view of Sinn Féin North Belfast MLA Cathy Stanton upon hearing the news that the Apprentice Boys have been told that their march through a flashpoint area of north Belfast has been banned.

The Parades Commission said a parade through Ardoyne would have "an adverse effect on fragile community relations"

I have said before that Parades have two sets of competing rights and none supersedes the other. What we need here is dialogue but in the absence of that I would have to concur with Cathy and say this was the only logical decision.
