Robinson's working arrangements

Published 05/05/2009

I once read that politicians are a breed apart.

That certainly seems to be the case with DUP leader and First Minister Peter Robinson if he is to be believed when claiming during a recent television interview: “I didn't see anybody queuing up to take my daughter's job when she had to carry a parcel bomb with ball bearings attached to explosives out of my office” and “I didn't see anyone pushing my son out of the way when he was opening a letter bomb at my home ”

Does he honestly expect us to believe that he deliberately chooses to employ his own children for such tasks?

As for his claim that “no Member of Parliament in Northern Ireland is going to allow somebody into their office that they cannot trust ” what exactly does he have to hide?
