Cartoon – “The unelected and unelectable…”

Emma Pengelly and Peter Robinson cartoon

The soundbite of the week past probably came from Westminster and from David Cameron at PMQs. Probed repeatedly by the leader of the Opposition on the cost of cuts to tax credits to the ordinary family, the Prime Minister simply said the reform was blocked by an alliance of “the unelected and the unelectable.”

Stormont had an eventful week itself, and I suppose you could argue those adjectives apply to the First Minister and new Junior Minister.
