Nuts are we

Brian Feeney writes of Peter Robinson:

You can see how desperate the efforts are. All the examples offered are slightly weird. The inescapable conclusion is that Peter Robinson is the Steve Davis of Norn Irn politics.

You remember the satirical show Spitting Image dubbed him Steve ‘Interesting’ Davis precisely because he wasn’t.

Even when Davis was doing wondrous things with snooker balls no emotion ever showed on his face. When he was interviewed about his amazing performances his responses were uniformly boring and his voice monotonous if not toneless. Likewise all attempts to show that Robinson is ‘interesting’ are doomed to failure.

A couple of weeks ago, to my surprise, I had a brief conversation with Steve Davis. Nice guy. Not boring at all. On the contrary, quite funny. And surprisingly tall.
