The unfortunate thing is, when we look at our neighbours who are of different religion, almost two thirds of them who voted did so for a party who either are or were, terrorists and murderers......... or actively support them and their actions.
Lets not criticise Big Ian too hastily, would Gollum Empey be any better for Northern Ireland?
For over 40 years the Rev has been at the forefront of protecting the British front line agaionst terrorism by standing toe to toe with the fookers. Why have they not topped him, because they know he holds more sway over the British of N.I. than any mainland muppet.
He is a very clever politician and although the past he has said some ludicrous things he is a better bet as first minister than Gerry. Or am I getting the distinct impression that the "English" are trying to completely wash there hands of the Oirish problem they created?
Very well put. I don't think it'll make an iota of difference to the Rev Ian's plans, though. He's fully aware that the people who voted for his party trust him to do the right thing, come what may - he's no brilliant politician, but he's no Blairing liar, that's for sure; what you see (or hear is what you get).
I voted for McCartney. As far as he's concerned the rest are all shits, and I agree with that. Pity he lost his deposit.
Paisley has indeed stuck to his principles, most of them bigoted and from the 16th century. While I did see him give evidence at the Saville enquiry and respected his ability to run rings around the "legal eagles" he is an evil, spiteful, hate filled old man.
The sooner his kind, from either side, shuffle off this mortal coil the better.
