Plans for course are just baffling

I'm baffled. On the one hand, Environment Minister Alex Attwood has imposed a tax on plastic bags (despite it being pointed out that there is a perfectly viable alternative in the form of biodegradable plastic bags), ostensibly to protect the environment.

That would be the same 'environment' which gets conveniently forgotten about when it comes to the lure of money.

Forget tourism - the Giant's Causeway is the pearl, the real tourist attraction. Not another - groan - golf course which we don't need.

'Joined-up thinking' is a much bandied-around phrase - far less does it get put into action. Certainly not at Stormont.
