Paisley and Deputy exchanging laughs…

One thing no one who has seen them up close doubts is that Ian Paisley and Martin McGuinness like each other. It’s obvious in their body language and good humour. But their actual laughs are quite different, as this mockup send in by reader John (scarily?) demonstrates.

    Paisly ends up looking a cross between Tony Benn and Noam Chomsky!! He’d be horrified!

    Perhaps Pete could use that second picture to prove there is no god.

    The horror, the horror

    It’s Hughie Green on the left and let’s hope they never introduce their grandchildren to each other on the right.

    Paisley kinda looks like an incredibly smug Seamus Mallon with McGuinness’s face.

    The original is as sickening as the dynamic duo in it.

    With all due respect, Mr Paisley needs to develop a new publicity smile. Those missing molars seems to reflect missing brain matter.

    You know makes one wonder what was the last 30 – 40 years all about?

    You and me both, Crat.

    The last 40 years started out as a simple request for equality.
    Resistance to that idea, now thankfully accepted, allowed others to hijack the agenda and led to the horrors that we all went through.
    Was it necessary? Of course not. Had the Sunningdale agreement been allowed a year or two to bed in, none of it would have happened I believe.
