Trimble takes ermine…

LORD Trimble of Lisnagarvey – a townland name which apparently translates as Fort of the Gamblers – has taken his seat in the House of Lords this afternoon. Not to be outdone, the DUP have three lords a-leaping – the party’s first ever. Ian Paisley’s wife Eileen is expected to be known as Baroness Paisley of St George’s after the ward which elected her to Belfast City Council in 1967.
