DUP MLA for South Down Jim Wells receives feedback from the electorate as he attempts to prevent private clinics performing abortions in NI.

A staunch flegger and pro-lifer, what’s not to like?


Here’s Jim getting hysterical on a visit to Dundalk in 1986 as his colleague Peter Robinson was appearing in court for his part in a disturbance in Clontibret, Co. Monaghan.

Calm down, dear.

Good times.


Strangford MP Jim Shannon (above) believes the BBC children’s programme Teletubbies could change attitudes in North Korea. The DUP man has backed a House of Commons motion that calls for BBC programmes to be extended to the Korean peninsula.

The early day motion says: “The broadcast of programmes like Teletubbies would change the attitudes of the North Korean dictatorship, which has incarcerated more than 200,000 of its citizens in gulags.” The Strangford MP said it was “really important to have the BBC in North Korea”.

Teletubbies ‘could transform North Korea’ says DUP MP Jim Shannon (Stephen Walker, BBC NI)
