Looking at BBC News site pics of todays internal election of a new DUP leader (28 voters, I think), I came to the ghastly awareness that the DUP HQ is literally a few hundred yards from my home – a drab building on a street corner that I assumed was a constituency office.
Up for election are Edwin Poots and Geoffrey Donaldson. There is no known problem to which Edwin Poots – a man who believes the world is 6,000 tears old – is the solution. There is only one problem to which Geoffrey Donaldson is the solution: Edwin Poots.
Outgoing DUP supremo Arlene Foster – the woman who personally presided over the waste of hundreds of millions of pounds of public money with an insane heating scheme (it was either corrupt or monumentally stupid) – will apparently sever her links with the party once she leaves office.
All political careers end in failure.
Anyway, it sent me off to Spotify for an immediate injection of ‘Northern Ireland Politicians’ and ‘Smash the System’. It’s the first time I’ve used Spotify. Someone here, at the AW, brought up the topic of the current digital availability of something else I’d foisted on the world a while back and I thought it was time I did something about it. A digital distro operation called Emubands did the business.
