Paisley: it’s not about embarrassing people…

Interestingly Frank Millar quotes the taoiseach as describing the DUP’s request for photographic evidence of decommissioning, “Dr Paisley emphasised none of this was designed in any way to be linked to embarrassing people It’s linked to transparency for the public at large.”Meanwhile, the media is speculating that the ‘deadline’ of the weekend is to be put back until Monday or Tuesday, with Bertie Ahern speculating that the governments will have to “make the call” shortly.
