Pensioner's Stormont ban is not the purr-fect ending

Editor's Viewpoint

In a move worthy of a Yes Minister comedy plot, a pensioner has been banned from feeding cats in the Stormont estate because she might pose a security risk to the current talks taking place there. A senior civil servant has got himself in a flap over the pensioner's kind hearted gesture which she has been carrying out for 30 years and has bared his claws.

Instead the bureaucrat should have pawsed for thought before issuing the edict. Now the fur is set to fly as the doughty pensioner pleads for politicians to come to her aid.

Does anyone really think the pensioner would let the cat out of the bag if she eavesdropped on the discussions?
