Created two tables and created a view with union clause.
The order by doesnt have any effect and can take in any junk text.

How to repeat:
Create table emp1 (id int);

Create table emp2 (id int);

CREATE VIEW view_tariq AS
(SELECT *  FROM test.emp1) union (SELECT *  FROM test.emp2 ) order by this_is_dumb;

"ORDER BY is allowed in a view definition, but it is ignored if you select from a view using a statement that has its own ORDER BY"
