“Truly Shameless”

at

Ian Paisley Jnr

Brendan Hughes, in The Irish News, reports:

Ian Paisley billed a Belfast charity for almost £6,000 to fly first-class to a peace conference in New York.

Others travelling to the event from Ireland and Britain, including tánaiste Simon Coveney, flew in economy – more than 10 times cheaper in price.

Political opponents branded the DUP MP “truly shameless” for recouping the high-cost travel from a charity.

It is Mr Paisley’s latest lavish trip controversy after months of criticism and parliamentary probes over holidays in the Maldives and Sri Lanka.

Ah here.

    Once Sense-of-Entitlement Syndrome kicks in, it’s vary hard to identify an antidote.
    Though it’s not as if we didn’t have plenty of cases to experiment with?

    Given that the primary appeal to his voters is his attribute of ‘Not a Taig’, he’s not a great exponent of Protestant parsimony.

      Lets not forget about the old classics- ‘save ulster from sodomy’ and ‘never never never’. Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be.

    Protestant dogs are always harder to keep – and what’s this about the Catholic sort ethics again?
