Seen dining together today in Belfast…

Ian Paisley Junior and Stephen Nolan… There has been some speculation that Iris Robinson’s contribution on the Nolan Show last week was a reassurance to the Free Presbyterian base that everything is okay and fundamentalism is still part and parcel of the DUP world view. Perhaps it was just to smooth things over with the show’s popular host, after a tempestuous half hour or so. Oh to have been a fly on the wall at James Street South!
