Lord Kilclooney: Never mind double jobbing, some of us were treble jobbing
With regard to Ben Lowry’s column (‘The ban on double jobbing by politicians has been a complete failure,’ November 16) I recall that John Hume, Ian Paisley, and myself were treble jobbing ie Strasbourg, Stormont, and Westminster.
Indeed I once spoke in all three chambers on the same day: 8am in Strasbourg, 2.30 pm at Stormont and 8pm in Westminster.
At 82 years old I am still recovering and I did not deliver the same speech in all three chambers!
John Taylor (Lord Kilclooney), Co Armagh
