Pink is the new Orange

From the Irish Times online (subs. req'd; almost identical free link) profile of murdered loyalist Jim Gray:

His appearance set him aside from the typical loyalist hardman. Even [Johnny] Adair, whose own fashion statements often provoked ridicule, took offence at some of Gray's outfits. "Jim would arrive at [Ulster Defence Association] meetings in his pink jumpers and Johnny would go mad," one source said. "He'd be ranting, 'That's some image for our organisation'."

If one is looking for black comedy, Adair's concern about the image of his terrorist organisation meets the requirement. As we noted previously, Adair had a preference for political fashion statements, via his Zionist dog.
