The shameful attack at the Capitol building in Washington

The chaotic scenes from the ornate Capitol building in Washington, DC last week seemed so out of character with a normally sedate US Congress, that it is hard to believe that they actually took place at all.

Despite our own colourful history of protest in or about Stormont itself, there was nothing that could compare with the invasion of Congress by thousands of angry Trump supporters.

Stormont's "brawl in the hall" some years ago is about as close as it gets and even that was a flash in the pan.
