What do they need computers for if they won't do their job?

If Belfast Today (the online edition of the "News Letter") is to be believed, the Northern Ireland Assembly wants new computers for their Party offices. Understandably, Peter Hain said "No!"

If the parties carry on refusing to govern, what would be the point?

On the other hand, if the age of their PCs really is stopping them from getting government back from Tony Blair's direct-rule governors, maybe they could use some of the money they were paid for not working for the past few years to buy themselves a new machine or two. It seems only fair!

:O Um - are you by any chance trying to make the politicians do the "fair thing"? Haven't you noticed that the word "fair" cannot be used in conjunction with "politician", and "Asssembly".

Of course one can never use the word "fair" in conjunction with "dearoltonyblair". :P
