Too many talk and eat turkey

Published 27/10/2008

Turkey sandwiches — how disgusting that our non-working politicians should be reduced to eating turkey sandwiches for lunch.

It hardly befits the Armani suits and the tailoring from fashionable London stores.

Why weren’t they taxied to one of our first class hotels to choose from the cordon bleu menu? My heart bleeds for them — I don’t think.

Get them out of Stormont and on to the dole queue. Somehow, I don’t think the allowances would allow for much more than beans on toast and it wouldn’t be long before they were back to talking and working and looking to the future and not dwelling on the past. If not, let’s get back to direct rule and who knows, we might even get Mr Mandleson back? He hasn’t gone away you know.
