Online comedian and actor Matthew Dinneen, who has taken social media by storm with his alter ego ‘Michael Fry’, has shared a hilarious sketch of his take on the Stormont Assembly elections in Northern Ireland.
In the video posted to Twitter, the Meather native poses as “Kevin McAllister” of the Immobile Conservative and Unionist Party (ICUP). The fictional party’s political line is “freedom to suppress the freedoms of others.”
He begins the video by declaring that Northern Ireland is on the verge of change and that “change is bad”.
The comedian explains that the ICUP has a five-point plan to “encourage stats, discourage change and encourage stagnation across Ulster”.
The Derry Girls star said if elected his party is promising “more sausages than ever”.
“Point one, there will be no more Irish Sea, we will drain the sea. That means no more protocol, no more customs controls, and no more erosion of our culture, values, and shoreline by waves of ethnic water,” he said.
“Second, electricity has changed the way we live since Sinn Féin invented it in the 1960s. As energy bills rise for working families in Northern Ireland, we propose phasing out electricity altogether.”

“Number three, if we’re elected, we’re promising more sausages than ever. Number four, it’s a common misconception that I believe a woman’s place is home. I believe a woman’s place is actually outside the house, between the coal shed and the outbuilding.”
“Number five, there’s a place for everyone in Northern Ireland, for homosexuals and unmarried mothers, that place is hell and until judgment day they can use their charisma, their union spirit, their nerve and their talent to create beautiful christening bonnets for the.” To design and make Babies of Fermanagh and Omagh.”
