Michelle O’Neill speaking at Bobby Storey’s funeral on Tuesday

Michelle O'Neill standing on the podium at Stormont on Thursday afternoon pontificating on Covid-19 regulations will make herself, and the entire Executive, a laughing stock.

At the very least, she needs to say sorry first. Not to unionist politicians or other opponents, but to the plain people of Northern Ireland who have abided by the rules O'Neill's party set and broke.

On Wednesday, she put the criticism of herself and Sinn Fein over Bobby Storey's funeral down to cheap "political point-scoring". If she believes that, then she is deaf and blind to public opinion.
