Shuffling the DUP pack


With the Minister for Finance and Personnel being touted to leave his ministry to focus on his Westminster duties i feel a full DUP shuffle on the agenda.


The DUP ministeries are Enterprise, Trade & Investment; Culture, Arts & Leisure; Environment; and Finance & Personnel. They also have a Junior Minister in the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister.

So who will be where in the next few weeks?  Peter Robinson, our First Minister, will not go anywhere. However, Nigel Dodds is moving out to concentrate on his duties as an MP. Does this also set a precedent for the DUP Junior Minister, Jeffery Donaldson MP? and we all know that Sammy Wilson is biding his time before he leaves DOE.

This would leave three places without 'demoting' anyone as such.

I have heard the name Simon Hamilton,  DUP MLA for Strangford, being touted for a ministry and that Arlene Foster, currently Minister for Enterprise Trade and Investment, will be moved up to the Ministery of Finance and Personnel.

I also expect Edwin Poots, who had been Minister for Culture Arts and Leisure before the Maze Stadium fiasco, to be offered a ministry in the reshuffle.  The is also a possibility of Peter Weir, MLA from North Down, getting a ministry as well.

So card son the table. Who will be in or moved in the great DUP reshuffle?

First Minister - Peter Robinson
Junior Minister - Peter Weir
DFP - Arlene Foster
DETI - Maybe Jeffery Donaldson but think more Edwin Poots
DCAL - Nelson McCausland
DOE - Simon Hamilton

I wonder if i should put a bet on? Never been any good at predicting the lotto, so I would not take my stab at who will go where as an absolute. But I think i may be close.

Only time will tell how close i came, but it is always fun speculating.

IN THESE LAST DAYS, WE SEE THAT GREAT MEN ARE BEING RAISED UP IN BRITISH ULSTÈR TO LEAD THE CHARGE TO VICTORY!!!!!!!

HERO NELSON MCCAUSLAND, THE NEW MÄNNYSTÈR O FOWKGATE, AIRTS AN AISEDOM, IS DEFENDING FREEDOM AND LIBERTY IN ULSTÉR!!!!!!:

Politicians hit out at the Democratic Unionist Party’s new Culture Minister today after he said he would not attend [THE MASS] in Catholic churches because of his opposition to the [CULT].

Nelson McCausland also admitted he did not know Tyrone were [TERRORIST FIELD TRAINING "CHAMPIONS"].

As he repeated his opposition to [TERRORIST] sport and language, he was accused of failing to show respect for those outside his own community.

YES!!!! YES!!!!!!! YESSSSSSSS!!!!!!!

THE ROMAN POPE HAS BEEN EXPOSED AS AN AGENT OF PIAPS!!!!!!!!!

ANOTHER HERO, MR JUSTICE TREACY IS UPHOLDING JUSTICE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS IN THE PROVINCE!!!!!:

A legal challenge against a 270-year-old ban on the use of the [LEPRECHAUN] language in court proceedings in Northern Ireland has been dismissed in the High Court in Belfast.

[A LEPRECHAUN] language speaker, Caoimhin Mac Giolla Cathain [BWAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!], a member of the Shaws Road Gaeltacht [BWAHHHHHHH!!!!!] in west Belfast, took the case after he was informed that his application in Irish for an occasional [?] drinks licence could not be considered.

Court staff said the reason was that the Administration of Justice (Language) Act of 1737 stipulated that “all proceedings in courts of justice within this kingdom shall be in the English language”.

The drinks licence was sought in connection with a musical concert in the Culturlann [BWAHHHHH!!!!!], Falls Road, Belfast, said to be the foremost provider of [LEPRECHAUN] language events in the area and where [LEPRECHAUN LANGUAGE] is generally spoken.
