The Chuckle Brothers become the Brothers Grim

For those of you wondering, the last Irish thread is a reference to a piece entitled “Sinn Féin ag cailleadh féinmhuiníne?” or “Is Sinn Fein losing self confidence?” Anthony McIntyre reckons the party is none too happy with the change at the top of the DUP tree. He reckons that the new combo is more likely to become the Brothers Grim than the new Chuckle Brothers. It’s a notion that’s clearly catching on. Although I am not convinced that this game is a pain-free zone for the DUP. The education debate has a way to go before completion, just yet.
