NOT since Diana have we been so mesmerised by another woman's love life. Iris Robinson's financial feints are the more serious component in the politician's disgrace, but they aren't half as tantalising as her affair with a tea boy-toy boy.

Inappropriate relationships have always gripped us, and Iris has also sparked a 'would you/wouldn't you' debate among women.

In a roundabout way, she has also done her party some service. Her marriage is compromised, her career has imploded and she may well have toppled her husband, because politicians can recover from sleaze swirling round them but rarely from ridicule.
