The photographs posted on a public Facebook page designed to promote the activities of the Orange Order have been condemned as “hateful”, “racist” and “breathtaking in their ignorance” by the Scottish Council of Jewish Communities, the Catholic Church, anti-sectarian charity Nil By Mouth and Legion Scotland, which represents veterans.The Facebook page was removed last night but the photographs were passed to police and officers are now investigating.The images have been uncovered two weeks after the leadership of the Orange Order gave triumphalist speeches at Glasgow Green celebrating the election of members as councillors in Scotland and talking up the UK Government’s deal with the DUP as an indication that “the future is Orange”.
Posts on the page indicate that there are “prizes on the night for best dress” and the administrator commended participants in the photographs, stating: “I can see in the albums everyone puts in the effort.” The flute band’s Twitter account which was linked to the Facebook page was also used to promote the Halloween parties.

He brought along a friend she had met once or twice—a sculptor named Don Gummer, who lived a few blocks away, in So Ho.
Only weeks after losing the love of her life, she had found the second love of her life, the man who would become her husband. Corman wanted to counteract the “toxic rhetoric” he had been hearing from feminists, who he felt lumped all men together as “a whole bunch of bad guys,” he says now.
