He bangs the drum

Rediscover your inner Irish nationalist by going to this video at the 12:20:00 mark and watching Tories and Ulster Unionists gloat -- incorrectly as it turned out --at an anachronistic situation involving the resignation of Sinn Fein MP for West Belfast, Gerry Adams.

FWIW, we wonder if the DUP and the Speaker of Commons had originally agreed that Gregory Campbell should get to raise the Adams issue and segue into a question about expenses, when they realized that Campbell might have some problems on that score.  So instead Campbell did an old-news question about fuel taxes, and Dodds got the Adams question.  Two questions to a small party during Questions to the Prime Minister is very hard to explain otherwise.

Note also unionists forgetting their own history with MP resignations
