When three score and ten just isn’t enough…

WHAT with all the attention having been on the blueprint for devolution and the Donaldson aftermath yesterday, it’s time to wish a belated happy birthday to Ian Paisley. As he hit a milestone 80 yesterday, I wonder how he looked back at his career and what he still hopes to achieve. As he will be the oldest member of the Assembly when it’s reconvened next month, Paisley – as Father of the House – will have an immediate role in getting things going – taking charge of the election for the vacant Speaker’s chair.
