Peter Robinson, keeping the press accountable – Caption Competition

Peter Robinson, Keeping the press accountable

Never mind the “unpleasant odour” rising from Northern Ireland’s libel law (and the urge to censor), there’s something a little stinky coming from Peter Robinson’s call for the media to show more support for Stormont. As Orwell said, “journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations.” Surely we don’t need more photos of politicians standing around with cheesy grins, Stormont’s main output?

I look forward to seeing your captions for the empty speech bubble. With honest regards to Private Eye.

Oh, and spot the editor below…
