Paisley in favour of deal before election

Nice riff from readers on Paisley’s ‘now or never’ theme. Frank Millar, one of the most reliable voices in Irish journalism, believes that these remarks are being internally received as a signal that the Doc favours a deal now, rather than after the British General election. He also reports that the latest date for the leader’s actual verdict is Friday.

    Isn’t interesting that Paisley appears to be so totally in control of his party and leading te negotiations from the front. Before the Assembly elections it was widely believed that Peter Robinson wouldn’t even let him go on television.

    He stayed in the background for the same reason Bush disappeared Condi Rice and Rumsfeld until after our election.

    We’s all moderates here.

    Not a popular word – some are very sensitive.
