And the award for the daftest political statement of the day goes to…

THANKS to Ian McCrea MLA of the DUP for providing the laugh of the day. He called for those who removed a Northern Ireland football flag to be prosecuted, because “those responsible had to tramp through the flowerbed in the middle of the roundabout” to get to it. So how did those who put it up manage to do put it up in the first place? Arguably, removing flags from public property is upholding the law, so perhaps Mr McCrea is calling for the wrong people to be prosecuted! Apart from that, good luck to Norn Iron tonight.
