Billy Liar

By Danny Morrison

With the first week of the election campaign over there is no doubt that the prize of Billy Liar has to go to the DUP. DUP billboards proclaimed that under Trimble in the next power-sharing executive that OEbig, bad wolf, Gerry Kelly will be the Minister of Police and Justice. Of course, there is no such portfolio and the DUP omits to say that if there were then the main parties, including the DUP, might have the option of taking the post itself, under the d,Hondt principle. But why let the facts interfere with a good scare story of Gerry Kelly being in charge of the peelers and being saluted by the Chief Constable Sir Hugh Orde!
