Paisley action betokens inner DUP tensions

Lindy McDowell doesn’t believe there is any tension in the Paisley household over Rhonda Paisley’s decision to take action against the officers of the DUP – her father and brother included. Even Paul Berry, who is taking separate action against the party is named. Liam Clarke believes it has arisen because of a tension between the modernisers and the traditionalist old guard.
