Newton Emerson: Unionists strike wrong note in response to police handling of Clyde Valley flute band

Columnists
Do all unionist political parties, from the UUP to the TUV, believe Larne’s Clyde Valley flute band represents their core constituency? Do they think in a dispute between such a band and the PSNI, the bulk of the unionist electorate sides with the band? There is no sign of nuance from the parties in their reaction to last weekend’s Apprentice Boys parade in Derry, where Clydevalley turned up with Parachute Regiment and ‘F’ insignia on their uniforms.
