The check is in the mail. That dress makes you look skinny. I won’t. . .well you know.
Apparently in NI “The Lie from Hell” was directed at the DUP’s Peter Robinson by UU Chief Tom Elliot. What devilish deception earned this unionist umbrage? What fiendish fabricated falsehood was so awful it had to have originated in Lucifer’s living room? What cock and bull story caused such apoplexy and was so evil it could only have come roaring out of the gates of Hell?
Why none other than the statement, by Mr. Elliot, that Mr. Robinson had said that Caitriona Ruane was “great.” Robinson, who seems to have reacted less cuckoo to becoming a cuckold has suggested he would refer the matter to his lawyers. Good work if you can get it lads.
Now I am not of the opinion that Ms. Ruane is the Frosted Flakes of Education Ministers (do you get Tony the Tiger over there?). In fact, I suspect there are blessed few people who would suggest that she was “great’. But isn’t it a tad childish to fight over whether one adult may have called another great, or to see someone deny it with such venom? I mean, aren’t there enough real things to attend to? However, I must thank both men for engaging in this schoolyard hostility. It makes politics on this side of the Atlantic seem almost serious by comparison. Not for long mind you, but at least for a few minutes.
