DUP would be a debate disaster

I don't understand why the First Minister Peter Robinson is so agitated by being excluded from the UK election debates.

It isn't very long ago that he was easily riled by a female BBC NI reporter when he took offence to her questioning; asking if she would rather come up and take his place.

In the television debates, the DUP would get eaten alive by the rest of the parties. As for Sinn Fein, they are only elected members to parliament and not MPs.

If I was one of the 60 million British residents, I wouldn't want to listen to the rubbish spouted by the DUP and Sinn Fein (or any Northern Irish parties).

Get over it, Peter.
