Power and Iris Robinson 'affair'

I feel sorry for Kirk McCambley and I am amazed that his relationship with Iris Robinson is just seen as an affair with a younger man.

Mr McCambley was just 19 when this affair took place. His father had just died, believing that Mrs Robinson would keep a protective eye on him.

She was a powerful, influential woman, who solicited funds for this young man's business.
