Turbulent times

Musical chairs has proved popular with British politicians of late. Some have ended up on the backbenches. Notably the former Prime Minister, Michael Gove (the man who would not be king) and the Northern Ireland Minister who refused some other office of state.

Northern Ireland ends up with James Brokenshire for Secretary of State. A surname which suggests an affinity with border disputes and people turfed off their land or burnt out. At the very least he may have hobbit smarts.

Who thought it was a good idea to take £500,000 away from the Arts Council in Northern Ireland?  Sneak that in when there’s a whole cartload of crap happening, why don’t you?

If the government has any sense they’ll start adding Prozac to the mains water supply.
