It’s a floor plan from last nights BBC question time broadcast from Belfast.

Describing the DUP as “goodies” and SF/IRA as SF/IRA is the kind of ill judged humour that lands wannabe comedians in bother from time to time.

DUP homophobia was laid bare by Ian Paisley Jnr during last nights programme. Not a very bright person, Ian Paisley Jnr gives the impression  the DUP are some rabid sub-sect of the American Republican Party. You couldn’t use the word “goodies” to describe them. You could use misogynist, homophobic, racist, or as i do, a coven of loons.

Which brings us to Sinn Fein, The BBC has apoligised to the Sinn Fein Minister for eduction John O’Dowd,  after the joker that did up the floor plan labeled him “SF/IRA”.

Sure enough Sinn Fein supporters got up on their high horse wailed and gnashed their teeth in righteous indignation. In fairness they do righteous indignation quite well.

Sinn Fein are upset being described as “SF/IRA”, this is despite the fact some of their TD’s, councillors and MLA’s were former members of the IRA.  What have they got to be upset about ?

A quick look at the Sinn Fein shop, and guess what…… they are selling IRA paraphernalia

You get the picture…….. On one hand Sinn Fein are up on their awfully high horse about being associated with the IRA, but have no problem selling IRA goodies on a Sinn Fein website.
