In scenes reminiscent of the last days of Bertie and the O'Donovan Rossa do's to rattle a few bob for the soldiers of destiny, it seems that Michael Gove stuck his hand into a pocket to pony up £1500 for a table where Ian Paisley shared his wisdom for a price.

More interesting are the arrangements made by the local council. The council didn't pay their local MP directly but paid to the hotel. As to what happened the money after that, it's anyone's guess. Elected members and senior officials from the council all rolled up on the big night last August. It was about this time that Mr Paisley was denying the suggestion that he had taken a holiday worth £100K in return for touting for business post BREXIT.

No mention is made of how much they paid and as to whether the council was also paying £1500 for its table. Presuming there was a few quid left over after the hotel took their costs, what happened to it?

The NI auditor is now examining the matter. Popcorn at the ready, this has the makings of RHI writing all over it!

By the way whatever happened to Ian's referring of himself to the Parliamentary watchdog on standards? Has the watchdog ever barked?

The DUPlicitousness never ends :roll:

They will claim the origin & whereabouts of said money was written on a post it note but some silly fecker must have binned it :shock2: ... and now they have absolutely no records of what happened or who was even in attendance as unfortunately & much to everyone's surprise, a rather large monkey escaped from Belfast zoo just yesterday and proceeded to smash up all their computer equipment thus destroying any potential evidence .....

.... the Zoo has since issued a statement saying they have no reports of a missing primate :shock: ... although there is a large bishop on the run in Armagh apparently :?


well, its as plausible as the sh1te coming from the RHI inquiry :roll:

Northern Ireland was a great little country for Unionists when they had free reign to do as they pleased . Its no wonder they can’t face up to the present situation .

The Mainland Brits are tiring of Unionists treating them as a Milking Cow . Unionists are an uppity bunch for people that cannot pay their own way .

Dupers with their paws out for handouts and at the same time demanding opt-outs from stuff on the Mainland that does not suit is not going totally unnoticed in Britain . Put together with gross incompetence or worse on the RHI and Ian Óg's holiday in Sri Lanka the Dupers are an embarrassment .

The DUPs only crime is Loyalty to the half-Crown-( that takes in everything-)-
It's ironic, the DUP were set up to challenge Big House Unionism and ended up up with the Swish Family Robinson mentality.

I doubt if the hotel gained anything on the transaction, If anything they'd be lucky to have broke even. As L Ron Hubbard used to say in the USA in the 1950's. "If you want to make real money, you gotta start a religion."


Trust me, Ron was not kiddin in that one, Robinson's lived like Royalty in Tarpon Springs.

Why? Probably because there was already an independent review into what happened and public disclosure of the documents could adversely affect this review. This was just another Labour Party stunt to try to embarrass the government which would have done more harm to the learning required from the Windrush issue. The disclosure of papers now was rightly defeated by 316 votes to 221. Would you have preferred if the DUP had voted to wreck the review into this important issue?

Immediate priority is doing whatever it takes to put things right for the Windrush generation. Busy first day at @ukhomeoffice and Parliament focusing on just that."

The first thing he did as the New Home Secretary was vote to keep the Windrush papers secret because Teresa May was the architect who wouldn't survive the truth.
They're fukkin shameless and you back them 100%, hang your head.
