Government Is in Peril as Scandal Rocks Ulster

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/10/world/europe/10ulster.html

And here's to you Mrs. Robinson...



An affair involving Iris Robinson, a lawmaker, and a much younger man has shocked Northern Ireland and threatens the government of her husband, Peter Robinson, below, shown in 2008.



The husband.

The basics: "LONDON — The sex scandal that has transfixed Northern Ireland in recent days has a cinematic echo: a 60-year-old Mrs. Robinson who was caught in an affair with a man who was 19 at the time, and is now at the center of a scandal that threatens to bring down the power-sharing government that has steered the province out of 30 years of sectarian bloodshed."


Is it just me, or does this one seem all so tame in the context if world news. One more cougar nails one more boy.

Maybe it's a real slow news season in Northern Ireland.
