Anti-gay Northern Ireland MP Iris Robinson and wife of Northern Ireland’s First Prime Minister Peter Robinson, said in 2008 that homosexuality was worse than pedophilia and that gay people suffered a mental illness that could be “cured.” Well now she has recently admitted to some mental troubles herself. At about the same time she made those statements, Robinson was having an affair with a friend who needed “consoling” following a death. What’s more, Robinson herself then had a mental breakdown of her own and attempted suicide, and announced in December that she is stepping down from politics.
Now the BBC is reporting that the young lover Mrs. Robinson took up was 19 years old at the time. Robinson was 59, more than three times Kirk McCambley’s senior. McCambley now runs a cafe in South Belfast after Robinson encouraged friends to invest in his business. The cafe is located in a visitor’s center built by the Castlereagh Borough Council. Robinson is also a member of that council.
