In a bid not to be outdone by the Complete Works Festival of Shakespeare’s writings that I posted about previously, politicians from across Northern Ireland are coming together in May to re-enact scenes from our political history.
- Classic voting rituals to decide on first and deputy first ministers will be re-run, using the acclaimed d’Hondt system;
- Playground rituals of I'm-not-talking-to-you will be re-enacted in a contemporary Stormont setting;
- Eileen Bell will take the place of John Alderdice who was unavailable to reprise his role as Speaker of the NI Assembly;
- And no doubt the MLAs will vote themselves a pay increase too - something they have a history of doing.
Roll over Shakespeare.
