In fairness to Blackie there is a Ballyrobert in County Antrim as well, though in this case it was referring to the one in County Down. That said, it was about the only relevant thing Paisley got right in his tweet as

"MECHANICAL fault caused a car to go on fire and sparked a security alert, police have confirmed. British Army bomb disposal officers were sent to the scene on the A2 between Bangor and Belfast."

He didn't check any of the facts but jumped in with boot feet .

The DUP could have access to the UK and the EU in a "win-win" scenario thus getting huge investment to Norn Iron but they would go down with the UK in a ball of flames if given the choice.

Yup - just to prove their uber-britishness. Even though most in Britain would consider them Irish.

So, a budget for Norn Iron worked out by a Mainland Parliament.

Sounds like Direct Rule to me.

Anyone else agree?

@Jeremy Corbyn

The Tories and the DUP have just voted through cuts to free school meals in England.

The Tories bought the DUP's support by excluding Northern Ireland from these cuts.

A disgraceful tactic which is playing politics with the health of our children.

Looks like the DUP protecting ALL the school children in Norn Iron.

Any other party in their position would have done the same.
