Good news for Northern Irelands wildlife. I've seen many beautiful flowers along the roadside since they stopped cutting it, and as long as road junctions and corners are kept clear so road users can see, we all win!
Motorists have grown increasingly impatient with overgrown grass verges beside Northern Ireland’s highways but yesterday environmentalists highlighted the benefits for wildlife.

I'll copy and paste the first comment. Hits the nail on the head.

Entirely right here, these actions of intolerance and hatred are on par with racism and homophobia. How are these kids being brought up? Is it the nationalist generation before them that are responsible or their sectarian schooling? After all they are not integrated in the slightest with their protestant neighbours, unlike many kids within the Suffolk area who go to integrated education to learn attributes that help imalgamate communities and build a positive future. I lived on tiebacks Road for a time, I know what these people face on a daily basis, the kids here can't even go to the garage on the blacks Road (only shop) without being on receiving end of this inbred hatred, I witnessed many a verbal and physical attack. Reminds us of America pre civil rights movement, when African Americans where subject to similar fate.

Yes, the could. Not just in Northern Ireland either.
It’s very difficult to be upbeat and bouncy if your job, as mine does, involves observing and commentating on local politics.

Stop doing this to animals you claim to love! #animalcruelty

Stormont is a shambles. It might work better if we could throw the current parties out of office and replace them. They might actually resolve things instead of use petitions of concern to dodge the issue.
From Andrew Wooster, Deputy Chair of QUB Conservative Future... I recall reading the Stormont House Agreement on the 23 December 2014, and albeit a scepticism on Stormont's ability to deliver, ther...

They were set up to protect minorities. The are only used that way in a small number of cases. Go onto TheyWorkForYou, pick any random DUP/Sinn Fein MLA. and go see how many petitions of concern they have used which have nothing to do with protecting minorities, Unbelievable. +Leigh Kirker

The cartoon is good, and sadly, true. No matter what wealth the world creates now, it won't matter if we push the Earth over the edge. The Earth will survive, it always has. Earth has survived ice ages, heat a lot hotter than todays standards, increased CO2, etc. The species living on the planet haven't been so lucky, especially the species at the top of the food chain. Today, that would be us.
 
Greenhouse gases are pacing at an earthly record; leading to hotter temperatures. If we do not, at least, mitigate this trend then the consequences remain unspeakable.

Anyway here is more support  for the cause.As the the cartoon reflects, it is ironic how our abstract misconceptions of wealth lead us to destroy what was the true measure and substance of our wealth. And that does not say much about our collective intelligence, - "even exclusive of the GOP"

Community spirit in action. Pity we still have small minded individuals who think putting a Stars and Bars outside a black players home is ok.

Interesting article. Might be some truth in it.

He kind of makes a point here. The bands do keep kids off the streets, they give them something to do in the evenings, they collect money for charities. The problem for the marching bands image comes from video footage of intolerance being beamed around the country. If all bands marched with respect for every community, the perception people have of them would be different. The sad thing is, this intolerance only happens in a few areas.

Quite true, classic case of pot calling the kettle black saying Greece is a shambles, while defending Stormont, where they recently voted on a budget they don't have the available money for!
