“Why should the by-the-numbers, repetitive bashing from the DUP necessarily be a core part of this story? Why were there no better options to get under the skin of the story? Why just take two press releases and run them together?
Instead of publishing the invective, why not investigate the reasoning? Y'know, that old journalism maxim of shining a light into dark corners etc. No?
Why is the DUP's hurt and upset necessarily part of a story about the UUP and the Tory Party? It makes no sense.”
Examining the substance of a press release, on this occasion attributed to Michelle McIlveen, Bobballs asks,
“Why must we endure all this bollocks about unionist unity when the DUP thinks the next UK government (which is not neutral on the union) is just a big supper club? And WTF is a supper club?”
Hear hear! Both funny and true.
