Junk Mail from...


Did you notice that on the top left corner of the envelope it reads Northern Ireland Assembly?
That was delivered by Royal Mail this morning. Of course I open it expecting a possible invite to a bloggers gathering, or something grand like that, in Stormont or Hillsborough. I was extremely disappointed to find it was junk mail from an MLA. This MLA I have previously seen driving his yummy mummy jeep into Greyabbey with one hand on his steering wheel and the other holding his mobile phone. I didn't think that MLA's could multi task.

Inside the envelope was...

This piece of junk mail, which is on it's way to the bin, read...
Dear Constituent.
Thank you for your continued support, I do not take for granted the trust that you have put in me along with the responsibility that this entails. This card is a simple reminder of the ways in which I can be contacted if you should need any help in issues relating to housing, planning, tax credits, benefits and other constituency related issues...blah blah blah...
It went on to advertise that the DUP have now a Satellite Advice Centre held in Ballywalter Village Hall, that sounds dishy. They also have Satellite Surgeries in Killyleagh and Portavogie.
As a typical political blogger would say, instead of repairing and advising people on satellites you'd think they'd be better doing what they're paid for.Haha.

I was thinking about complaining about the possible misuse of Northern Ireland Assembly stationary and postage, but as I have been a recipient of 'hot' stationary from Stormont in the past I won't. It's a pity my uncle wasn't still alive and working up there. It would have been laptops for all the kids at Christmas.

I better stop now I've just seen a PSNI vehicle drive past my house.

I wonder how many Christmas cards go through the franking machine at Stormont.

Ellie, I hate to think.I'm sure the DUP'll make good use of it.

So this guy was ignoring the law on Mobile phone usage while driving. That would be a £1000 fine and three penalty points.
Do you think he'll do teh decent thing and resign for giving such a bad example to others?

Martin I reckon he'd need to get caught by the local PSNI first. The chance of that on the Ards Peninsula is very slim. The last I heard is, if there are over half a dozen police officers on the Peninsula at one time that's a lot.I'm sure some of them would suffer from 'blind eye syndrome' too :-)
