It’s politics Jim, but not as we know it…


ASSEMBLY quote of the day (not sure whether to laugh or cry yet) so far is David McNarry (UUP) poking fun at the DUP, which he said had promised not to go into government without securing an economic dividend. He said: “By 2006 the great negotiators, the strong men and the party people could trust with their money had moved from warp three and were hurtling along a rollercoaster at warp six. We are star trekking across the province was the DUP cry and there`s Klingons in the East Wing now Ian, yes they are Klingons Ian but not as we know it. These Klingons are republican Klingons. You have got Commander Warf McGuinness on the bridge with his hands on the controls. The fella we need to build new roads, he`s a right trekker, he`s not sure if he`s here or there and the rest of us are not sure either Ian.” The other laugh was on Stormont Live, when the wee girl tore round the studio spilling Jim Fitzpatrick’s notes everywhere.
