A local man went behind the gates at the “Twaddell Civil Rights Camp” to see what was costing up to £50,000 per night to police. An empty caravan.
The self-styled civil rights camp has been in situ since the summer of 2013 calling for more parades, respect are culture and all that jazz. A bastion of understanding it is a regular photo-op for shit-stirring Unionist pols and in the autumn of 2014 was the site of at least 50 contentious parades.
It’s Wee Seamie Bryson‘s personal Mecca.
