Tired of going to polls? Then vote for the pundits' party

By Eddie McIlwaine

I hope there will be no more talk about the possibility of another Assembly election in May. If the rumour does surface again I'll immediately start planning a holiday far, far away in the Merry Month.

So, I suspect will a lot of other folk, tired of too much political stuff being thrust upon us and often repeated again and again. It's all very well being concerned about affairs in the province, but enough is enough.

After the count, there were so many commentators on both the BBC and UTV screens that I couldn't help thinking that if they had formed a party and, with their superior knowledge, contested and won every seat they could have gone into government and solved all our problems.

Just imagine, The Commentators Party running the country.
