Another Rattle Tossed From The DUPers Pram?

They’re at it again. As if more evidence were needed that the DUP have their sights set on Belfast’s own President Mary McAleese, Ian Paisley and Nigel Dodds’ tag-team effort yesterday provides more confirmation that the DUP are having immense difficulty coming to terms with the President’s popularity amongst nationalists AND unionists/ loyalists in the north. The demand that the Irish President be treated like any other foreign leader on her visits to the six counties goes to the crux of the matter, as virtually half of the population in the North regard Mrs. McAleese as anything but another ‘foreign’ leader.
