And so the ongoing saga behind the scenes at NI21 "headquarters " lingers on; bitching, backstabbing , rumours ...... and bad hair.
Can it be that NI21 leader Basil McCrea and deputy leader John McCallister have had their very public falling out over who has the better haircut as sources very close their the "root" of the issue claim?
That Mr McCallister was said to be "hair envious" of Mr McCrea's floppy school boyish lustrous locks; so much so that he has been heard to utter the words "aye, him and his Peter Beardsley hairdo".

But in a new twist to the hair wars Basil has hit back suggesting that it all started when they were both at home one morning watching their favourite TV programme "Mr Tumble ' and casually suggested that there was strong likeness between the children's TV Star and Mr McCallister ..... especially their similar looking cuddly child friendly haircuts. Needless to say relations have been strained ever since .

Obviously a "parting " of they ways is final, with few "highlights " to look back on.
But if history has taught us a thing or two about power , these two men will struggle ....
You only have to look at Mr Paisleys pristine quiff;
Even Martin McGuinness donned a Sly and the Family Stone style Afro on his road to Deputy First Minister;
