Sammy, the misunderstood genius…

LAST week, I pointed out the apparent contradiction between the DUP Anti-Environment Minister’s position on climate change and the DUP Enterprise Minister’s plans to create “green jobs”. The DUP has come down on the side of Arlene Foster, but it didn’t stop Sammy comparing himself to Galileo! Now he is never likely to stand trial in Rome, but at the moment, the world is definitely revolving around Sammy. The misunderstood genius added: “When you talk about scientific consensus you have to bear in mind that as things change, as people discover things, as ideas are found and new information comes to light then sometimes people are left looking very foolish.” True – so perhaps he should have a long, hard chat with the many Creationists in his party…? After all, didn’t Galileo prove the Bible wrong on several counts? The image of the DUP has projected recently was of a tight, disciplined, professional party. Now it’s in danger of looking like an atavistic tribe of throwbacks again.
