A Stormont in a teacup as beauty queens quit politics

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 24/10/2013

Let's be honest, who would you rather see at Stormont, our hard-faced politicians or a parade of beautiful girls? Heaven knows, Parliament Buildings could do with some new faces. And those who criticise the girls who enter beauty pageants should realise they are hardly likely to come out with any more inane comments than many of our MLAs.

The whole row over the Miss Ulster contest at Stormont read more like a Carry On script than a serious political furore. And NI21 leader Basil McCrea was twice silly – for agreeing to host the competition in Stormont and then declining to comment when it all went pear-shaped.

Titanic Belfast is a more appropriate venue for the contest and if it means there are no politicians present, then everyone is a winner.
