Shiamsa BS: Paisley pulls out - no big surprise. (60* d) RE: BS: Paisley pulls out - no big surprise. 31 Oct 06


I always felt that the utterings of Ian Paisley since the 1960's were the greatest recruiting campaign the IRA could have wished for. Really insulting towards Catholics, and a look at his website confirms this.   But of course he was only the latest in a long line of bigoted politicians going back to the 1880's who maintained control by agitating against Catholics. The irony is, that if they had not been so uncompromisingly against Home Rule, the 1916 Rising would never have come about, and a united Ireland might have remained, after Home Rule, a relatively loyal part of the British Empire. Thus Carson died a defeated and embittered man. Paisley might follow in his footsteps.
