Oops. Staff at Bobballs were really looking forward to MEPs going to the OFMDFM committee (Balls! 03.12).
We felt it was a platform for a candidate to really let the media notice them. A place to show how efficient Europe is. And the right environment to show up some MLAs and shake things up a bit.
And so it proved! So well done Jim Nicholson for achieving all the above by
- ilustrating how efficient Europe can be
- and getting in the face of a local MLA.
And who was the target and vehicle for all this ire? Why, Jim’s very own demoralised election agent Tom Elliott.
Seriously Jim, why?
And what of the DUP/TUV confrontation? Alas the DUP MLAs present were timid as mice.
