Laird hypocrisy over cross-border driving…

LOOPY Lord Laird was quoted (offline) in the Tele today, blasting the Government’s decision to fund Rally Ireland, which crosses the Donegal/Fermanagh border, to the tune of £700,000. “At a time when budgets are being cut elsewhere, this is a complete waste of public money,” said the UUP peer, conveniently forgetting his own £250 round-trip, cross-border, taxpayer-funded excursions in a taxi between Dublin and Belfast for absolutely no good reason that he could give. What a hypocrite.
