What the new fiefdoms mean for each party?

Sarah Curran has a sharp take on what the battle a day will mean for the future of Northern Ireland. Good Government, how are ya!Here’s a few pickings:

DUP – “…it was no surprise that they took the Department for Stopping Money Getting to Nationalist Areas as the lead off”.

Sinn Fein – “They also chose the Department for Massive Feck-Off Cross-Border Motorways”

UUP – “Department for Making Sure What’s Left Of Our Elderly Electorate And Party Workers Survive to the Next Election”

SDLP – “Department for Encouraging People on Benefits in Catholic Areas to Drop Sinn Fein”
