SCOTTISH Grand Master Ian Wilson addressed the demonstration in Ballymena today. He used the occasion to warn members that the Labour Party intends to scrap the historic statutes that have guaranteed Britain's liberties under a Protestant monarchy since the time of William of Orange.
The leading Orangeman revealed that the three United Kingdom Grand Lodges had met recently with Justice Minister Michael Wills in London.
Mr Wilson told the Ballymena Orangemen: "You must surely be aware of regular media speculation about the constitutional acts and about the possibility of scrapping the statutes that underpin our Protestant monarchy and have given our nation three centuries of settled democracy and religious liberty.
"I have to tell you, Brethren, it's no mere possibility any longer, it's on the cards. Make no mistake, our Protestant monarchy is finished unless we can stop our politicians unpicking the constitution.
