She said that I said that he said, etc etc

COULD it be that even the media is becoming a little weary of the wars of words that perpetuate Stormont’s hallowed halls and carpeted corridors?

While political pundits still fall over themselves to report on bickering, the comedic value of our Ministers and MLAs is wearing a little thin in the face of harbingers of recession doom.

Why else would the BBC axe the TV version of political satire Folks of the Hill? Coming hard on the heels of the final tour of Give My Head Peace satire, its entertainment value may be wearing thin; and worryingly we may be moving into a disturbing era of mature politics...though no-one is holding their breath just yet.
