  • Conor Burns interview

    I listened to what was a v interesting discussion with Burns and all the right Qs were asked. I’m no Tory but he gave measured and thoughtful responses which impressed me, and his journey from n Belfast nationalist background to where he is today is impressive. But , god almighty, it was almost undone by his devotion to Johnson and his analysis of his “successes”, Brexit done..oh but for the overhang of the NIP..he, Burns, still has serious flaws…but a good 30 minute listen..

    Mark is exactly what NI needs. A non-biased, forensic, intelligent and respected journalist. Not interested in likes or views, purely the facts. Everything that Nolan isn’t.
