  1. “In the year since the Spotlight programme with the police investigation and council investigation ongoing we have amassed substantial material demonstrating serious and damaging inaccuracies in the BBC Spotlight programme.

    “Mrs Robinson will be making, through her solicitor, a detailed statement following the publication of the report commissioned by the council and all legal options are now under active consideration.”

    Hold the phone… does this mean we get a round 2?
    So which part of the story does she claim was inaccurate (apart from the obvious bit about knowing a lovely psychiatrist who can cure gays)?
    Sorry but given the overwhelming evidence of what she was doing behind her husband’s back, this smacks of rearranging deckchairs on the Titanic.

  2. “A devout Christian” that’s pushing it considering the way she conducts herself!

    1. According to the book , God has the sin of adultery listed as one of His special 10 commandments “Thou shall not commit adultery.”

      Back in the Old Testament, the sin of adultery warranted receiving the death penalty by way of stoning if one got caught in it.

      1. but now to be christian and devout means you must be a cherry-picking hypocrite with no understanding of the mistranslations etc within the bibull

        1. Yes, certainly Iris Robinson’s notion of devout Christian seems to mean that you shag the butcher behind your husbands back and then when you’ve finished with the butcher himself you shag his young son.

    2. i’m sure thats normal behaviour for devout christians.

  3. It’s always the ones who shout loudest!

    She compared gay people to paedophiles and then in the sixtieth year of her life she seduced a teenage boy.

    There’s such a great, long-established tradition of outspoken homophobes being in some way deranged or perverted that it’s almost fun to watch them fall now.

      @Dromio…She was shagging the butcher boy right at the same time she was on national radio condemning gay people as an abomination.

        And she groomed him, she used the loss of his mother as her way into his pants.

        She is a very sick perverted woman.

        1. A sexual preditor no less. Absent of scrupples,

  4. Pavlos. “A devout Christian” that’s pushing it considering the way she conducts herself!

    I thought that is exactly how “devout” christians behave from my experience.

    1. It seems that way.

  5. Typical God-fearing Christian.
    “Do as I say, not as I do.”

    1. Agreed. Hypocrisy is the bread and butter of the “devout”, it seems.

    2. Pick and mix hypocrisy. The mark of a devout Christian!

    I met with Iris as one of her constituents, and at the very time she was having an affair with a 19 yr old, she lectured me on morals in society and made a number of sectartian, racist and homophobic statements. It is shocking that as a public servant involved in these financial mis-dealings she has not been held to account.

  7. “we have amassed substantial material demonstrating serious and damaging inaccuracies in the BBC Spotlight programme.”

    Details please.

    Or are they engaging in their usual lies.

    Iris Robinson is a criminal. And a liar. And a bigot.

    And a borderline paedophile.

      @ David…..”borderline paedophile” The legal age of consent in the north of Ireland is 16 as it is in Britain. Lets not get carried away here. However she could be accused of grooming as she knew the lad from when he was nine when she started shagging his Butcher dad. She started a sexual relationship with the son after his dad died when the lad was 19. Hardly paedophilia. I have wondered for some time though as to whether Kirk McCambley might be gay as he was a regular in most of Belfasts gay clubs. Was her homophobia possibly a reaction to a rather unpleasant (for her) discovery when he refused further sexual relations after a month with Mrs Robinson. At this point sh tried to recover the money involved from him but he refused. The whole story would make rather intrigueing reading were it to make it to paperback. There are also shady property dealings involving her cukolded husband, the First Minister of the north of Irelands devolved administration.

        …cont.. a good name for it would be The 1st Minister, the Wife and the Butchers boy.

    LOVE IT!

  9. Shame the bitch did not succeed in her suicide attempt. But i do not believe there was an attempt more a pr attempt to garner sympathy and show how bad she felt at her misdeeds.

    1. Paddyswurds 15 Mar 2011, 5:31pm

      suicide smoocide…never happened! That was just a ploy to garner sympathetic support for her cukolded husband, the first minister amongst the blue haired grandees and dowagers of the Democratic Unionist Party. Which worked by the way but he did lose his second job as MP for East Belfast at Westminster. She was holed away in their Orlando palace when she was supposed to be under suicide watch in a London Private Mental Health Clinic.

      1. did’nt she have an affair with ian paisley as well? maybe that was just a one night stand cause we all know she likes young boys. skank !

  10. Turbo-slut.

    Yes, I hate this woman but find the ´borderline peadophile´ comments less than helpful.

    Simply speaking, she isn´t! They were both over the age of consent when the rleations occurred.. Like it or not, lets not cherry-pick which laws we recognise?

    She IS a criminal and an incredible hypocrite though which seems to go with the territory of being a ´christian´.

    She is well out of order to presume to lecture others on their ´morals´ when she clearly has none of her own!

  12. Horny Mrs Robinson is a shining example for humanity. On how not to behave. As more and more people cotton on to the real morals of religious people like her, and right wing Christian nut Glenn Beck, who suggested that the Japanese earthquake is God’s punishment on humanity, they will turn away from organised religion. The world will eventually become a far more spiritual and pleasant place as a result.

  13. What would she actually have to do for the PPS to think there was sufficient evidence that she had abused her position? Sell assembly offices as retail space? This lecherous, psalm-singing crook seems to lead a charmed life.
