    Yep…that’s about the right level for NI politicians

  • Msiegnaro

    It looked an extremely uncomfortable meeting, I’m not sure if this was due to the cameras.

    Jesus that was eye poppingly banal…

    “Yes, I’ve had two birthdays so we’ve been quite busy.”

    Good God, it’s no wonder Marty crosses in hands in front of him.

  • Croiteir

    Wouldn’t be surprised if he said “long may you rule over us Ma’am”

  • Arthur Renfrew

    One needs your autograph on one’s Irish passport application form

  • Redstar

    At the end of the day as a British stooge what more do you expect. They tell him what to say he happily agrees as limos and expenses trumped Republcanism long ago for SF

  • Skibo

    Always the joker and your partner Redstar there too.

  • Dan

    “Aaaah, agent Martin, I’ve been expecting you”
