Northern Ireland’s Blair
Northern Ireland First Minister Peter Robinson, and his wife Iris, bought a valuable bit of land from a developer for just Â£5, BBC Newsline has learned. The land deal enabled the Robinsons to sell part of their back garden for nearly Â£460,000. They could now be liable for thousand of pounds in taxes. They sold the land for Â£5 to a different developer, allowing the deal for their garden to go through. The DUP has accused the BBC of a smear campaign against Mr Robinson.
