OUT OF TOUCH: Sammy Wilson

Calling Robin Swann a poodle wasn't one of Sammy Wilson's best gags. The health minister's reply that he always considered himself "more of a Jack Russell" was a wise and witty response which made the DUP MP look silly.

Swann is no stranger to employing self-deprecating humour, but the fact that Wilson went after him in the first place shows a striking lack of political acumen. Levelling serious criticism at the health minister is one thing, but branding the man handling a pandemic that has killed over 1,000 people here as a breed of dog is incredibly ill-advised.
