    Default Mitchel McLaughlin Likely new speaker at Stormont

    @KenReid_utv: Looks like the Stormont Speaker job is staying Foyleside. Derry Journal reporting Michel McLaughlin to take over Willie Hay later this year

    ken Reid tweets that Mitchel will become the new speaker replacing Wilkie Hay. Mitchell is a good orator and well respected and IMO a good choice for the job.

    Good luck to him if he gets it.

    Great news indeed.
    The moron who thinks the cowardly abduction, and brutal murder of Jean McConville wasn't a crime.

    baby jebus wept, and the biased vegan shed your tears.
    Even with the usual caveats attached to opinion polls, a 65% to 17% majority for Northern Ireland remaining in the UK suggests little room for doubt.

    Nothing articulate about spouting sf/ira mantras and platitudes.
    But why not indeed? The world has gone mad. Stormont is a joke and it is impossible to identify one MLA who has any talent. McLaughlin is no better or worse than the rest of them.

    You people put far too much faith in your elected representatives. You hold them accountable for every single thing that happens and spit virulence at them when something doesn't go your way. If you feel so strongly about MPs and MLAs then don't vote for them.
