£100k? This shouldn't get a penny!

I see from the Irish News that Unionist Councillors in Belfast have voted to hand £100,000 of public money to Loyalist secterian bonfires. To me, this exposes the worst elements within Unionism. Recently we have seen various Unionist leaders complain about how Loyalist areas are underfunded and poorly resourced. Surely then this money could be better spent than on a bonfire where secterian actions are regularly on show such as burning tricolours, burning nationalist election posters and worst of all- burning effigys mocking Catholic suicides.
