Paisley: we must first win the war!

Ian Paisley always makes good copy. On Adams and Sinn Fein: “I’ll not be talking to him as long as he keeps his guns and his terrorism. He tells us he all for peace, when all the time he’s planning for war. The only way forward for Northern Ireland is to first of all win the war”. When confronted by Noel Thompson with a question on murders committed by Ulster Resistence guns, “Gerry Adams should go home and shave off his beard. Then he’d be a barefaced liar instead of a bearded liar”.
