By Tony Grew

The DUP was engaged in one-upmanship during Margaret Ritchie's recent debate on VAT and tourism.

Jim Shannon started it. "I truly believe that I represent the most breathtaking constituency in the whole United Kingdom," he claimed.

Sammy Wilson didn't agree: "I look across Belfast Lough to their constituencies, which are shrouded in mist and doused in rain, from the stunning coastline and Glens of Antrim, which are bathed in sunshine."
