Just as a side note please....

This thread has been running for some time successfully, with light good hearted banter covering various opinions and political angles.

Good to keep it that way.... ;)

That'sill allways be hardliners in any organization, Thats a gigiven to most fair minded people. As for the Boers well ,The Orange order demands of inindigenousrangemen to be true to their Nationalts Laws, As I wrote South Africa was a complicatedi stuation Due to Apartheid, Th ere were "AngloLodges"   Native lodges and Boer Lodges Operating under one Grand Lodge Which I am sure does not exist anymore As for MrPaton I apologize for sounding like a smarty pants, just I have studied that period in depth, As for Swoosh dont tknow about the Orange were you live I take it you are Scots GNAT, Lets hope when the referendum comes? the Scottish people will vote with their Legendarycommonsense for the UNION

Surely the promotion of the Union of the United Kingdom is for political parties and not religious institutions

The Order holds no party political views, maybe at one time. But all members take it as a duty to uphold the Union and promote the Protestant faith.

As someone with no belief in a god or the Union, I look forward to the outcome of the forthcoming referendum, where I am sure the legendary common sense of the Scots will prevail - no matter what they decide!  :)

Let us hope so, Chris. 

I heard Wee Eck has brought out a pamphlet - "50 Ways To Mugabe A Referendum".

He will be well scunnered if he still loses.

As a Protestant, if any Minister told me how I should be casting my vote, he wouldn't have his sorrows to seek.
 The older you get the realisation comes how short this life is. Don't waste it continually looking back.

Remember it took two referendums to get Scotland its Parliament back. Nil Desperandum, the subject won't go away.
