Trimble: political pincushion?

HE’S been stabbed in the back so many times, David Trimble is something of a political pincushion. The News Letter yesterday revealed last year’s plot to depose the UUP leader. Trimble takes the News Letter’s front page today however, with a call for the DUP to talk to Sinn Fein. Maybe they will fit Gerry and co in after they meet with the leader of that ‘other’ republican party – Taoiseach Ahern.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
