When it comes to spinning numbers, The Stormont Assembly deserved an A star.

Take local unemployment.

Yesterday it rose to a level not seen in the past 12 years. 61,400 are without a job. This figure keeps rising, remorselessly.

What to do? Well, talk about the unemployment rate instead, which has fallen to below that of the UK average! What does that mean – exactly?

Well, nothing other than the fact that fewer people are actually seeking work!  That is NOT a good result if you think about it.

For some reason, the media do not pursue these little details. Almost as if they were in collusion with our failed Government.

    What to do?

    What do you do when an Italian Captain with a crew of Filipinos sails an Italian owned/Panama registered cruise ship into a pile of rocks?

    Speaking as an individual I’d abandon a sinking ship without waiting for official instructions.

    EMIGRATE PRONTO!
