Ahhh, I knew it was just a matter of time before my old buddy stuck his head up and started spouting tripe!
PAISLEY SAYS RESULTS SIGNIFY BURIAL OF GFA
05/11/05 10:50 EST
DUP leader Ian Paisley has said the general election results
had seen the burial of the "so-called agreement".
Mr Paisley was speaking outside the House of Commons, where
he and the party's other eight MPs will be sworn in on Thursday.
He warned new NI Secretary Peter Hain to "heed the ballot
box and listen to what the people of Ulster are saying".
Mr Paisley said if the secretary of state's intention was to
confront the unionist people he would fail.
He added that the DUP "would not be talking to the IRA now,
tomorrow or ever".
Mr Paisley said his first priority would be to ensure fair
DUP representation on all boards in the north of Ireland.
This would ensure the people of the north of Ireland had
"independent Ulstermen representing them, not paid
government lackeys," he said.
Most of the north of Ireland's new MPs will be sworn in at the
House of Commons on Thursday. The DUP flew to London on
Tuesday in larger numbers than ever before - its
parliamentary team has grown from six to nine.
While William McCrea has been an MP before, new to
Westminster are Sammy Wilson and David Simpson.
Just for the record, I'm fairly convinced that McCrea is certifiably insane. I hope SF and the SDLP know what they are doing, taking on these folks...seems the "Unionist" vote is consolodated now, and the "Republican" still in two factions.
People know Parsely is a margin character, right? Please, someone tell me that's so.
