Bush call to Paisley…

US President George W Bush has phoned Ian Paisley to support efforts to restore the Assembly. During Bush’s last visit to Hillsborough, Prime Minster Blair was said to have kept the DUP away from the President – a mistake, some believed, as Bush is much more likely to be listened to by the DUP than a hundred Bill Clintons. It was, like so much Blair gets involved in, another missed opportunity.
