Controversy: The funeral of Bobby Storey

It was the Christmas gift that kept on giving - but not in the way that any of us had hoped.

The scientists wanted the mid-December 'circuit-breaker' extended to take in the week leading up to the big day.

No politician, however, wanted to be the grinch that stole Christmas, so the advice was ignored, the big festive crowds hit the streets - and then the panic set in. This is microcosmic of what's been going on over the last 10 months of belated lockdowns, premature easing of restrictions and foolhardy schemes; in short, an unholy mess.
