Fearghal should have got more juice from this Berry

On UTV's Insight programme last night, Fearghal McKinney had an exclusive interview with Newry & Armagh MLA Paul Berry. Berry, who continues to reject the Sunday World's story that visited the Ramada Hotel to romp gayly with a chap he met in a gay chatroom, spoke at length about the pain he has been through and his support from both the family and the Lord Jesus Christ.

He talked about how he briefly considered suicide and how he felt abandoned by the party he has loved all his life.

When asked about the encounter that started the whole thing, he magnanimously agreed that he had been foolish, but nothing improper took place other than a massage (like the one he famously got from 'a wee darky girl' on his honeymoon). It was very disappointing that Fearghal didn't press harder for Berry's side of that part of the story. Also, more than once I got the feeling that Berry was trying to take a leaf out of Willy McCrea's book and summon up some tears. In the end he couldn't.

The clips of 'Paul in his natural environment' were also revealing - I never trust a man who shouts needlessly at his dog.
