While Peter Robinson played for votes in the X Factor against Naomi Long, Strictly Sinn Fein danced rings around unionists and smugly watched loyalist mobs create a jungle.

The ludicrous timing on the Christmas retail schedule for this charade to be played out will make most ordinary people despair.
Come election time, our shameful representatives should not be surprised if many of us switch off.
