So, how’s YOUR union keeping…?

AFTER a flying visit to Northern Ireland, Congressman Jim Walsh invited DUP leader Ian Paisley over to hear President Bush’s key State of the Union address, which is about to start on TV. It’s a far cry from the day Tony Blair prevented the DUP from meeting Bush at Hillsborough, and comes at a time when relations between Sinn Fein and the current administration just aren’t what they used to be. This is unlikely to be the last of the US charm offensive of the DUP and continuing pressure on SF over policing.
