What did good old Del Boy and Trigger from Only Fools and Horses do to deserve a spirited mention from the podium at last weekend’s Sinn Fein Ard Fheis?
Bonnet de Douge – I’m sure Del Trotter was more than surprised to hear his business acumen being compared to that of the current Government.
Sinn Fein Cllr Matt Carthy is obviously a Fools and Horses fan as it was he who dragged the Trotters and their hapless pal Trigger into the debate at Saturday’s Sinn Fein Ard fheis.
He said this government ‘has seen so many Ministerial changes since the last election that it now represents the political equivalent of Trigger’s sweeping brush but with less economic competency than Del Boy’.
Del Boy’s economic mantra is simple – “The Government don’t give us nothin’, so we don’t give the government nothin’.”
So if it were Del giving that speech at the Ard Fheis, he would have probably finished with a line dedicated to the Government – ‘don’t be a plonker all your life’!
