  1. “Their taste for expensive furnishings and decoration betrays the magnificent opulence the couple enjoy in stark contrast to the poverty of many of their constituents.”

    Oh, very christian.I seem to remember something about it being easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven. As Iris Robinson is SO keen to live by the ‘word of the Bible’, I’m sure she’ll be distributing all her wealth to the poor. NOT.

  2. It’s good to see her finally getting some comeuppance from the popular media, though why her homophobic radio interview was given carte blanche is beyond me.

  3. So not only a bigot but also a greedy nasty person to boot! wonder what sort of films they watch on their giant plasma screen; maybe in the same video club as Ms Smiths hubby?????

  4. I really wish pink news would stop quoting what she said every time she hits the news we have to read it again, she only said it once but pink news along with other media have printed it over and over, please, we know what she said, we don’t need to hear it over and over.

    Is NEPOTISM also endorsed by the bible? Oh, I see it…apparently, not a deadly sin.

  6. Did she put in a claim for her broomstick?

    Dear old Iris – not only a bigot but a greedy bigot. It looks like Iris has been facing a lot of angry people thanks to her bigotry. I was having a little look at the DUP website today ( There is a contact email address for every one of the DUP MP’s with the exception of Iris. To contact Iris one must email the generic They do not have her personal email address listed any more despite the fact that she is an elected public official. However last summer just after the scandal broke her mail her personal address was included. If anyone wishes to mail her directly to inquire if nepotism and greed are sanctioned by the bible then contact her on

  8. She truly is a nasty old cnut.

  9. What a vile piece of work she is. And she got away with it all – the expenses, the abuse. How can an MP be allowed to say such things and still keep office? What a bloody disgrace. I f-ing hate MP’s, and now even more so.

  10. Nepotism anyone ?????????????????
