Twitter for iPad : Again the DUP are in charge of this ministry and seem to be facilitating the implementation of the Irish Sea border twitter.com/Jess_Sargeant/…

Twitter for iPad : Mike Nesbitt did the honourable thing and resigned from his Assembly post, even though there were extenuating personal circumstances, and the potential harm caused by his actions was not very high. Contrast this with yesterday and the total lack of contrition.

Twitter for iPad : SF made a decision: the sacred duty of honouring IRA leaders took precedence over responsibility during Covid-19. And then denied it. Which is ridiculous.

Michelle O'Neill clearly regards Covid advice as of secondary relevance. Which means she can't do her job.

Fair?

Twitter for iPad : But still no movement to indoor weddings! Why? You can have a ring in your nose indoors, but not on your finger! twitter.com/sjamcbride/sta…

Twitter for iPad : Isn’t the real issue that mandatory coalition can never work especially if one Party does not want Northern Ireland to be successful ? twitter.com/alexkane221b/s…

Twitter for iPad : #OnThisDay in 1974 the IRA murdered John Walton, 27. Soldier murdered when booby trap exploded in derelict house near Newtownhamilton. Widowed mother, she’d lost husband 2 yrs earlier, told how son had joined Christian Aid mercy mission to drought hit Africa 9 months earlier #OTD

Twitter for iPad : ‘The leading battalions (of the 36th (Ulster) Division) had been ordered out from the wood just before 7.30am and laid down near the German trenches ... At zero hour the barrage lifted. Bugles blew the Advance. Up sprang the Ulstermen’ #LestWeForget Ulster Unionist Royal British Legion

Twitter for iPad : #OnThisDay in 1989 the IRA murdered Norman Annett, 56. Off duty RUC shot in his 81 yr mother’s living room between Maghera & Garvagh. Mother pleaded with murderers to stop firing & was herself shot in abdomen. She managed to crawl to the phone & raise alarm #OTD

Twitter for iPad : In a sea of whataboutery over the last 24 hours, the most distasteful is the attempt to use the funeral of schoolboy Noah Donohoe to shift the focus from what Michelle O'Neill did yesterday. Noah's family are not government ministers; they did not draw up advice & then break it.

Twitter for iPad : Even when the camera catches a blatant breach of the rules which SF demand others observe, this party of political charlatans treat the electorate with such disdain that they still try to justify and deny their behaviour. Breathtaking arrogance!
