MLAs fiddling as Rome burns

My son did all that was required of him at school. He gained very good GCSE and AS grades but when it came to admission to a local university the door was firmly closed.

Without a degree his chances of a 'good' life become limited, yet benefit scroungers have free housing and expenses. All this while our MLA's have flags, marches and the like as top of their agenda - fiddling while Rome burns.

Naturally the recession continues with house prices here slumping yet again and petrol prices remaining high.

Have we, I wonder, an economic death wish? Welcome to sunny Northern Ireland and have a nice day y'all!
