A former director of the Alzheimer’s Society in Northern Ireland has been appointed the province’s first Commissioner for Older People. Claire Keatinge will take up her £60,000 post on November 14. Stormont First Minister Peter Robinson said with the exception of Wales, nowhere else in Europe had a Commissioner of this type.
See how the Nanny Statist mindset works? Robinson actually boasts about setting up a NEW Quang0! He thinks it is great and at a cool £60,000 in a recession, I am sure Ms Keatinge will appreciate his largesse. So we now have a Children’s Commissioner and an Older People’s Commissioner? How about a middle-aged Person’s Commissioner? I feel I am being discriminated about, my feelings are hurt….please Peter….it would be a first for Northern Ireland.
