They were only pretending on Monday at the NYSE, but today the First and deputy First Ministers did open the Nasdaq market.. really. The official statement has the expected pleas for investment.. but the photo in this BBC report captures what seems to have been an unscripted moment, via the Times Square subtitles, as the First Minister of the NI Executive appears to have told the assembled businessmen, “I am a businessman of God..” And speaking of The Donald [*ahem* – Ed], it’s reported that the First Minister has spoken on behalf of the Executive.. and has told the billionaire property developer that his proposed golf course, and no doubt the associated development, would be welcomed by Northern Ireland ministers. Or perhaps just that they would be of a mind to welcome it.. Adds Meanwhile, here..The Northern Ireland Bureau representatives also posed for some photos
And did the tourist thing..
