“The door to agreement remains open..”

With the elevation of the DUP’s Sammy Wilson to the office of Minister for the Environment the Assembly’s Education Committee required a new Chairman. Step forward the DUP’s Mervyn Storey.. renowned thus far for his promotion of young-Earth creationism.. Perhaps we will now see those teaching guidelines adopted here.. We can almost certainly expect more skirmishes ahead in the battle against The Un-Enlightenment.

    ‘Iris, Sammy and now Mervyn ‘.

    Susan McKay wrote a book on the ‘unsettled ‘ Perhaps a new one is in order on the ‘unhinged’ 🙁

  • “Perhaps a new one is in order on the ‘unhinged’ :(”

    Greenflag, that recent photo of Cowen with his hands over his head IMO indicated distress rather than an ‘unhinged’ state of mind. However, I don’t think Susan is likely to shed much light on the ‘unsettled’ Irish nationalist flock.
