Old news

I said yesterday that a daily visit to the Portadown News archives would be worthwhile. Here's a story from the first one I picked today, at random from back in 2002:

Councillor completes studies
by our education correspondent, Una O'Level

Local Sinn Fein councillor Derek O'Hallion has graduated from the Open University. Councillor O'Hallion studied politics, history and electronics: his final paper was on 'The Modern Conservative Party'.

Receiving his diploma yesterday, Councillor O'Hallion thanked party colleagues for their support. "Sinn Fein has always believed in improving our intelligence," said the councillor, "although it would be wrong to suggest that we intend to use it."

Unless you know what a hallion is you probably won't get the joke.
