“Good heavens! You’re the culture minister..” Redux

Here’s the Culture Minister on the GAA’s new deal

If Sky is worldwide, beaming games worldwide, that’s a good thing, but I don’t want that to be at the detriment of local broadcasting.

I also don’t want it to be at the detriment of the people who don’t have Sky or who don’t have digital or satellite television to be prevented from seeing one of the best games ever so while it is a matter for the GAA, I do have concerns and I wish them well in trying to get it worked out.

Bear in mind, this is a culture minister who has been asking for broadcasting to be devolved to Northern Ireland Executive… Now, can any of you spot any of the “deliberate” mistakes above?

We don’t seem to do well in the cultural arena… [Too much war, not enough Culture? – Ed]
