Rory and the DUP
A DUP politician, whose blushes I shall spare, jokingly messaged on Sunday "McDowell wins US Open last year. McIlroy leading the Masters this year. The DUP delivering for Ulster!"
Today after young Mr McIlroy's disastrous final round he updated with "McIlroy crashes out at US Masters golf. The reason for this major setback is obvious - UUP/Tory cuts!"
It made perfect sense to most people at the DUP's breakfast briefing this morning, except for the Finance Minister Sammy Wilson, who hadn't a clue what the messages were about. Sammy confesses he isn't interested in golf or any other sport, and must have been one of the few Ulstermen or women entirely ignorant of the ecstasy and agony of the Holywood golfing star. Perhaps Rory should have joined Sammy on his allotment - he would have had a less stressful weekend.
