Almost a valedictory feel to last night’s documentary on Ian Paisley. You can get it three parts: the first part above, with parts two and three here and here. Snippets worth noting is Paisley’s clear irritation from the pulpit in the Martyr’s Memorial after he was deposed as the Moderator of the Free Presbyterian. There’s also split screen on Paisley talking about Ahern in 2003 and his welcome of the Taoiseach to Ballymena last week. Jim Allister too, inflects a subtle hint that there are people outside the party who might well move into the DUP once the Paisley leadership is gone.
