Dr Paisley goes to Dublin…

It’s a measure of how relaxed the DUP has become in its relations with Dublin that a delegation from its party is to visit Bertie Ahern and whoever his new Minister for Foreign Affairs is on Thursday. With Brian Cowen being tipped for a move in tomorrow’s cabinet reshuffle, the Doc is scheduled to make his first ever visit to an Irish government building in the Republic itself.
