Another one down

Today’s Ulster Star reports that Cecil Calvert, a veteran DUP Councillor, says he has quit the DUP as it “is no longer the party he has represented on Lisburn Council for the past 22 years”. Interestingly he added, “Dr Paisley stated he could do no other as Plan B was much worse than anticipated. Yet in 40 years I never heard Dr Paisley retreat from a threat real or imagined (my emphasis)”.

Hard to disagree with any of that really.
