Martina Purdy of the BBC has produced some interesting registered activities for our MLAs up at Stormont. One that strikes me as a little strange is that

Sinn Fein’s Mitchel McLaughlin declared his trip to Boston last November. He was part of a trade delegation from the north west and the cost was met by Golden Bridges (Boston-North West Ireland).

Nothing altogether strange in that you say? Ah, well, now…

Mr McLaughlin doesn’t represent a constituency in the North West despite being from there. Some wags have suggested that the times he spends most in his constituency of South Antrim is on the road from Toome to Randalstown and then on the M22 and M2 into Belfast, leaving the area around Glengormley.

I wonder what was so important in the United States?
