Quote of the week…

The DUP’s 10 MPs are increasingly driving the party – apart from Ian Paisley, whose increasingly entertaining media appearances suggest he has been locked in the boot.

    Is it possible to make media appearances whilst locked in the boot?

  • SeaanUiNeill

    Lights and a small webcam…..

  • Christopher Owens

    So there’s a divide in the party then?

  • SeaanUiNeill

    There’s always a divide in the DUP! Their strategy has always been oppositional, and simply being in the same party does not change that mode of engagement.

  • John

    Best place for him.

  • William Kinmont

    bit like those cars at Barrys with 2 steeringwheels, endlessly going round in circles whilst the parents have to keep coughing up the coins

  • Barneyt

    Hardly surprising when you look at the king maker role they presently play, the demise of the assembly and their increased relevance with the prospect of direct rule looming in some capacity. I suspect they regard themselves as holding higher office?

    Ian’s too busy being the Irish buddy of his tory mates to worry about things back home when he reverts to being the British buddy of his Irish mates.
