Taking Mickey out of politics

Published 11/09/2009

After listening to the Deputy First Minister's retort to Peter Robinson this week, I feel I must point out that Martin McGuinness is entirely wrong.

There is absolutely no way that Peter Robinson could confuse Disneyland with the kingdom that they preside over at Stormont: Disneyland benefits from continual investment and upgrading; it doesn't suffer from floods; it provides proper security for its inhabitants and visitors, through its own police service; there are several parades every day - which do not attract protests; everybody knows their job and does it; most importantly of all, the bad guys always lose.

Mickey Mouse should enter politics - or perhaps he already has?
