Iris sends love note to Peter

Iris Robinson sent her First Minister husband a Valentine’s Day card last month, a DUP meeting has heard.

While the shamed Strangford MP receives counselling at a medical facility, husband Peter has revealed that he is also being courted by a “lady” from Dublin.

Peter Robinson revealed the battle for his affections to party members at a meeting in South Down two weeks ago.

He told the DUP faithful that he had received more St Valentine’s Day cards than complaints about devolving policing and justice.

Mr Robinson said he received just one letter of complaint to his offices about devolving Policing and Justice powers to Stormont but he’d received twice as many Valentine’s cards.

“He told us that one of the cards was from Iris and the second one was from a lady in Dublin. "
