What difference does a year make?

Brian Feeney didn’t pull any punches yesterday (or today on Stormont Live) when he tagged Paisley’s legacy as the ‘nasty party’. In fact the party has been on a slow turn. Maurice Morrow’s mildly sentimental eulogy nevertheless contained some important grains of truth, not least in his assertion that “prior to Dr Paisley, unionism was led by the big-house unionists and landowners. Ian changed all that and provided a voice for the working class.” Will Robinson mark a change from Paisley’s leadership. The tone of his speech was certainly measured and full of liberal aspiration. Here’s how it translates into a TagCrowd:
