Editor's Viewpoint

What do we expect our MLAs to be concerned, even angry, about given the absence of a devolved administration?

Brexit, an under pressure NHS, underfunded education, abortion liberalisation or same-sex marriage legislation. The SDLP's Patsy McGlone also finds time to be annoyed by strawberries. Yes, you couldn't make it up.

Tesco are selling strawberries in boxes heavily branded with a Union flag logo.

Most people would be reassured to know that the produce they buy is produced on these islands given the high UK and Irish food standards, but not Mr McGlone. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.
