I am told that the organisers of Queen Elizabeth’s funeral are bracing themselves for trouble over the Northern Ireland invitation list which apparently lays down the rule that the local political parties can only send one representative to the ceremony. The problem, apparently, is that both of Sinn Fein’s leaders, Michelle O’Neill in the North and Mary Lou McDonald in the South, would like to go but as things stand that is just not on. Maybe Gerry should give his buddy Charles a bell? Anyway, watch this space.
Thanks to HM for the tip…..
