    is’t it great to be on high ground………….oh the irony…

    In World War 2, the average age of the combat soldier was 26. In Iris Robinson he was 19… 19…. n-n-n-n-n-nineteen.

    Ulster says NO. Iris Robinson says yes, Yes, YES, YEEEESSSSSSSS!!!!!! (we say ‘HO’).

    The song ‘Mrs Robinson’ by Simon and Garfunkel will be racing up the Itunes chart tomorrow. It’s the theme song from The Graduate – a heartwarming tale of a seductive older woman called Mrs Robinson seducing a much younger man.

    I do realise that Iris Robinson is a vile, thieving, bigotted, homophobic cow.

    But I just love how this story is playing out. It just gets wilder by the day.

    I bet she’s wild in the sack. Think of that 60 years of built up repression exploding on a 19 year old.

    I do hope there is a sextape.

    ‘Iris Robinson is too unwell to respond’

    How … convenient.

    Abominations, The Word of the Almighty, police investigations for bigotry, depression, attempted suicide, dodgy money dealings, 19 year old lovers, cuckolded First Minister husband…

    I smell a miniseries in a few years.

  6. “Mrs. Robinson, you’re trying to seduce me. Aren’t you?”

    It just gets better and better! Oh the irony!

    LMAO @ comment 3. @ comment 6 she’s probably exhausted, the jammy cow, lol. Q a Little Britain style sketch of MP at the gates of their home with family in toe trying to explain compromising sex scandal to the press.

    If Iris Robinson was to apologise sincerely for her homophobic bigotry and take steps to show that she meant it, then she could have an enormously successful career as a drag queen.

    She’d put Lily Savage to shame.

  9. Lets hop Iris Robinson was not Kirk McCambley’s first sexual experience or he might be damaged for life after shagging a Nazi granny.

    45k for a shag I’m guessing Mr Robinson is unable to perform or Iris fantasises about shagging somebody who could be her grandchild.

  10. The sad part, for the rest of us here, is that her hypocrisy, fiddling and lying and implicating her husband in it, could actually screw up our entire legislature at a really critical time. I’d rather have an openly womanising Boris Yeltsin telling the truth than a shady suppressed closeted person lying to us all.

  11. “And here’s to you, Mrs. Robinson.
    Jesus loves you more than you will know.
    Woah, woah, woah.

    God bless you please, Mrs. Robinson.
    Heaven holds a place for those who pray…
    away the gay”. (Ok, I just made that part up!)

    Simon and Garfunkel (1968)

  12. This woman certainly has no right to lecture me and the Gay Community on morals with her track record. What a vile, bigotted, Homophobic excuse for a cow she is.


  13. Even the high and mighty should know that however “brief” and “innocent” the encounter might be – however small the stone, thrown in a glasshouse – the lot can come tumbling down around their priggish ears.

    People in glasshouses really should NOT….

    “And here’s to YOU, Mrs. Robinson…right in the eye…!”


  14. Gives a whole new take on kiddy-fiddlin’..dunnit..?

  15. OMG! I Just have to post this…
    Funny how life sometimes imitates art ain’t it?

  16. Altogether now!
    [Ignore the irrelevant stock images!]

  17. The fact that she took advantage of a man who was bereaved, someone at their lowest ebb, will not go unnoticed by her constituents in NI.

    She is a scumbag; the lowest of the low.

  18. Mihangel apYrs 8 Jan 2010, 8:03am

    she was 40 years older than him (and him still a teen), got involved when he was vulnerable, got him cash, and she has just discarded him, claimed it was nothing, and demands victimhood.

    I has a brief but meaningful sexual relationship with a guy 30 years younger (but over 21) and felt guilty, but am still his friend, still look out for him.

    And these straights say WE have no morals….

  19. What a dirty old bugger she is. An eighteen year old at the time and there is also some sort of money -corruption – involved. It is billed as a sex-and-money scandal in the Irish Independent.

    I hope the lock her up.

  20. i hope they ban her from marriage and the adoption of children

  21. Christian 8 Jan 2010, 9:32am

    Gay bashing while at the same time being a near paedofile!!! That is pretty advance but I guess God has forgiven so its all ok….

  22. If it was a man befriending a vulnerable young man in the aftershock of his father’s death Mrs Robinson would have been wanting the older man publically hanged and she’d have said that the older man “groomed” the vulnerable young man. Mrs Robinson has known this young man since he was a boy; has she been grooming him for her own sexual gratification all this time? Disgusting.

  23. ha ha ha
    cuaght with your knickers DOWN and hand in the till…
    Even her husband has distanced himself by saying HE rather than WE have done nothing wrong ? I beg to differ …
    It is such a shame she will not face all the foul play she has been upto by hidding behind mental health issuse How low will this snake in the grass go ?
    It seems she likes to go all the way ???

    Will this change anything in NI ?

    you tell me

  24. Oh the irony of how these homophobes always claim to “be protecting traditional marriage” when they clearly can’t handle the concept of being faithful to one person for life, themselves. The problem is that whilst she has said she’s retiring from public life (well, except for when the criminal court case gets underway), she’s left her vile homophobic words in the public domain. She should apologise and retract those hurtful statements from public life too.

  25. So, here’s to you, Mrs Robinson
    Heaven holds a place for those who pray
    Hey, hey, hey

    Hahaha, hohoho!
    How DELIGHTED I am!


  26. There were even kickbacks from her lover.
    Here’s the Daily Wail report:

    Corrupt, lying, thieving bitch.

  27. This is Northern Ireland …. its politics are riven through with just this kind of hypocrisy.The more pertinent facts about the Robinsons is the way they have played the UK political system for every last penny they could wring out of it.The Robinsons have cost the exchequer £millions for themselves and their family members.Northern Ireland like Scotland have milked the English for generations all in the cause of the “Union”.The plain facts are that the English would be better if the Union was dissolved and the Northern Irish and the Scots sent packing.Of course the question then is where would that leave that other great money pit – The “Royal Family”.Answer: nowhere! – an total irrelevance to English national life.Northern Ireland has cost the REnglish blood and treasure (the Manchester bombings) and the Scottish just treasure but shedloads of it because of the crazy Barnett Formula.Time to finish this – UDI for England.

  28. Not to forget that other “son of the Manse” – the sanctimonious and equally hypocritical Gordon Brown ( the MP who never voted for any Gay Rights) – chief of the Scots Labour Mafia (with Ed Balls-up) who have landed this country(England)along with the Scottish bankers ( McKillop & Goodwin) in the biggest financial hole for generations.

  29. Love references to ‘The Graduate’, but, let’s face it, Anne Bancroft was a lot more stylish, and, as far as we know, not a pious crook.
    (Dustin Hoffman was totally gorgeous in those days, too).

  30. Just one question on this – why is it MAY face questions?????

  31. Yeah Genty, it’s SCOTLAND’S fault that they are under the English dominion. THEY forced themselves on poor ole England to get their “membership in the UK and they’ve continued the fight to stay in it for centuries since; even as the ENGLISH have struggled, just struggled, to rid themselves of the scourge of the land of kilts and haggis. Oh how the English have suffered under the strong arm of the Scotts.

    Damn those Scotts!

    From what texts do you get your history lessons?
