Fancy meeting you here..

Despite the official statement, I suspect that the BBC report more accurately reflects the reason for the invitation to the Sinn Féin MP for Newry and Armagh, Conor Murphy, to attend the enthronement of Alan Harper as the new Primate of the Church of Ireland – namely that he was invited as the local MP. Regardless of any spin, the event was fortuitously timed.. since the Duke of Edinburgh also happened to be in the neighbourhood.. and His Royal Highness decided to drop in on the ceremony too..
