“Land Registers NI is not responsible for any administrative irregularities..”

Gonzo noted previously Ian Paisley Jnr’s statement that the failure to register a property at Seymour Sweeney’s Ballyallaght Farm Cottages development in his name was due to an “administrative hiccup at Land Registry.” In today’s Belfast Telegraph, David Gordon notes that in a written answer in the Assembly, the Finance Minister, the DUP’s Peter Robinson – whose department is responsible for Land Registers NI – stated

“I can confirm that Land Registers NI is not responsible for any administrative irregularities at Ballyallaght Farm Cottages, Bushmills.”

    Oops. Junior needs a brown paper bag (good for hiccoughs).
    Some people also wear them over their heads so they can walk about without people looking at them askance.

  • Iris Robinson’s piece in the “Newsletter” (24 October 2007, but only appearing on Newshound today — hmmm) was headlined “Margaret Ritchie has to be legally right, not just morally”.

    She started: “… at all times you have to go through the appropriate procedures.” The sanctimonious tone continues from there.

    Now we have hubby implying fellow Party member and minister is a pork-pie merchant.

    Now what would the late Bill Deedes have said? “Shurely something wrong.”

    billyghoti,

    Is it just a coincidence that the second half of your name can be pronounced “fish” as in fishy?

    looks like IJP’s been telling whopperoonies,
    and has been caught with his pants down
    having dropped a stinkeroonie!
    Sack him, and let him get back to what he knows best:
    saving ulster from sodomy.

    Might be difficult with his pants down, parci.

    The Minister is to shrewd to let himself get caught up in any irregularities in relation to this issue. A bit to long in the tooth unlike some.

    I could imagine him explaining the need for clarity should any one expect him to keep quiet on this issue,especially if there is any chance of his ministry being affected by it.

    I reckon he would explain it like so,

    I was alright for a while, I could smile for a while.
    But I saw you last night, You began to talk shite
    As you stopped to say “hello”.
    Oh, you wished me well, But you couldn’t tell
    That I’ll not be lying over you, lying over you,

    and I said “so long” – You’ll be left standing all alone
    because I’m not lying, lying. lying. lying.

    It’s hard to understand
    The land registry department is in my hands, So I’m not lying.

    If I was you, I’d tell the truth
    But it’s true, so true.
    You need to do it even more, Than you did before
    But, mo chara, what can I do?
    For you don’t bother me.
    I’ll not be, lying over you, lying over you.

    From the Dvid Gordon story:

    He was asked about the registration of the house for a BBC Spotlight documentary broadcast on October 23, and said: “I am aware that there is some sort of administrative hiccup in Land Registry.

    “It is legally in my name. I can assure you it is mine. Possession is nine tenths of the law.”

    In a radio interview the following day, the junior minister said: “I did come on to your programme this morning and I heard a number of your callers ringing in and saying no surprise at Land Registry on this one.”

    Land Registers NI issued a statement on the case to the Belfast Telegraph a few days later. It said an application for registration had been hand delivered to it on October 23 – the date the Spotlight programme was screened.

    money money money

    I scheme all night, I sheme all day, to pay the bills I have to pay
    Ain’t it sad
    And still there never seems to be a single penny left for me
    That’s too bad
    In my dreams I have a plan
    A few brown envelopes and I’m a wealthy man
    I wouldn’t have to work at all, I’d fool around in Stormont’s main hall…
    Money, money, money
    Must be funny
    In the brown envelope world
    Money, money, money
    I hope the 12th is sunny
    In the rich man’s world
    Aha-ahaaa
    All the people I could screw
    If I had a little money
    It’s a big brown envelope world
    A man like me is hard to find but you must have the right frame of mind
    Ain’t it sad
    And if you happen to be like me, you’ll act like the three wise monkeys
    That’s too bad
    Hear no, see no ,speak no, I’ll have to go
    The less you say, see or hear , the less anyone knows
    My credibility has lost a fortune I’ll get the blame, my life will never be the same…
    Money, money, money
    Must be funny
    In the brown envelope world
    Money, money, money
    I hope the 12th is sunny
    In the brown envelope world
    Aha-ahaaa
    It’s better than life on the broo
    If I had a little money
    It’s a big brown envelope world
    Money, money, money
    Must be funny
    In the brown envelope world
    Money, money, money
    Always sunny
    In the brown envelope world
    Aha-ahaaa
    All the moves I could do
    If I had a little money
    It’s a big brown envelope world
    It’s a big brown envelope world
