Some surprise, eh?

Flash: Paisley pulls out from Adams encounter

DUP leader Ian Paisley today pulled out of a meeting that would have seen him come face to face with Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams.

The two party chiefs were due to take part in talks on a new programme for a future power-sharing government in the North of Ireland.

The decision to pull out was confirmed in Belfast just hours before the negotiations were due to start and followed a new row over whether Sinn Fein MP and former IRA commander Martin McGuinness would
swear an oath to support the PSNI police and the rule of law next month.

If agreement is reached, the DUP leader and the Sinn Fein chief negotiator are due to be installed as First and Deputy First Minister on November 24th in one of a series of choreographed moves towards the return of powers from London and Belfast by March 26th next year.

But Mr Paisley's son, Ian jnr, said: "The party leader will not be going to today's meeting. We need to talk with the [British] government about these matters before he starts going to programme for government meetings."

Earlier, a DUP spokesman said they were "alarmed" at the suggestion that a ministerial vow to support the police would not come into effect until next March even though Mr McGuinness is due to be nominated as Deputy First Minister in November.

As a republican, Mr McGuinness would have obvious problems in supporting British rule and policing in Ireland, but would find less difficulty supporting a Six County police service under locally devolved rule. The pledge demand is being seen in the context of previous DUP demands for repentance and humiliation.

British and Irish government officials regarded the first meeting of the new Programme for Government Committee as a significant development for the peace process in the wake of last week's breakthrough at the St Andrews talks in Scotland.

Under the St Andrews Agreement, which the parties have to give their assent to by November 10th, there are a number of staging posts before power-sharing returnd to the North next year.

The governments had hoped today's meeting would be part of the process of building trust and confidence between the two parties ahead of full devolution next March. There had also been speculation that the encounter involving Mr Paisley and Mr Adams would have represented the first official direct talks between the two parties.

Most people have stopped killing each other so much progress there. Perhaps we have to wait until the next generation of politicians on each side move into the top jobs. It is hard to see how Paisley and Adams can ever really have a dialogue of trust.

I guess I agree, but I think it is important to point out who the real obstructionists are. For years they have sabotaged the chances for peace, and begin the process of creating an atmosphere of trust. Paisley has been the instrument of this, and continues to be the instrument of this. I am glad that folks on both sides of the divide, in London and Dublin, are starting to publicly acknowledge this.

I suppose anyone that thought the DUP honestly wanted to share government with republicans/nationalists is deluding themselves.

The talks in Scotland last week did show some promise until the DUP began to add other demands to their wish list. Some of these were totally unrealistic and faded out.

The DUP are trying everyones patience, Tony Blair finds the man impossible to deal with. I remenber John Major lost his temper with him at a meeting and called a name ! Paisley walked out of the meeting.

There is a chance the DUP may move forward once Ian Paisley retires, the other members of the party had very little to say last week.

The true facts of the situation is the DUP don't want catholic backsides in government. Their grass roots voter is very anti catholic let alone anti republican, visit one of their websites. They have been driven to these talks by the British government.

Sinn Fein have put their ass in a sling to get the talks to this stage. They convinced hardened republicans to turn their back on the armed struggle and said they would deliver. Sadly the DUP are blocking progress at every step. So Sinn Fein are the ones who have to answer to those republicans.

Sinn Fein WILL join the policing board, that was always the sticking point for the DUP. Now they got an assurance on that, they moved the goal posts.

Please understand that all of this is a very big step for republicans, some here can scoff if they like, it doesn't bother me. What more can republicans do, alternative ?

That was my point in starting the thread. The apologists need to quit making excuses for this shit. We can go back and forth over the troubles, the history, who did what, ..... ad infinitum. But the fact is that the Republicans, in the face of provocation that most could not stand, have made and continue to make all the moves for peace. Paisley and that lot of anti catholic bigots continue to "move the goal posts" time and again. It is time for decent British and Northern Irish people to put the heat to those that really don't want equal civil rights and fair representation for all parties. As long as decent people act as enablers, these wretches will continue to subvert the process. Their intent is clear. They want the process to fail, and they want to incite the violence to start again.

That is about it Mick. Loyalists have murdered 34 people since 1998 and it never gets a mention. Can you imagine me coming here and republicans still knocking the odd loyalist off ?

Hardened republicans were not easy to convince about this new way forward, believe me the split that took place shattered life long friendships.

All we get on local television is the DUP going on about old chapters from the bible and the fire that God will send down upon the followers of Rome. I don't follow Rome so where do I stand ?


What you have to remember is, the DUP live in the past, they go on about the B'Specials, UDR and RUC. These groups were anti catholic and the British government disbanded ALL of them. The DUP keep telling us about the legacy of unionists in a protestant parliment 50 years ago.
Christ we don't need reminded of that !


They go on about "popery" and "popish ways" it's like listening to some preacher in the American deep south about coloured guys.

Yes it's easy for some members here to cut the shite out of me about past events, but what more can republicans give ?

Believe me the purse is empty.

I hope I'm wrong but I think Ian Paisley's attitude will only considerably mellow by death.

Please read up about "Ulster Resistance", a supposedly 'defensive' organisation founded by Ian Paisley and Peter Robinson among others to resist 'by force if necessary a British sell-out of N.Ireland'. The DUP joined hundreds of these guys in Ulster Resistance marching with red berets in military fashion. A year after the Ulster hall meeting, chaired by Paisley the group was involved in importing a huge arsenal of illegal weapons into the north. These weapons were subsequently divided among Ulster Resistance, the UDA and the UVF. However much Ian Paisley and others may claim to be opposed to such actions the results of the formation of such an organisation in a deeply divided society were inevitable. Dangerous and threatening language referring to 'force' and the paramilitary paraphernalia that accompanied the formation of Ulster Resistance in the Ulster Hall with Paisley himself centre stage chairing the meeting had the effect of leading certain members of that organisation to become involved in the procurement of weapons for the use of force. Over two hundred sectarian killings by loyalists were carried out in the aftermath of that importation of loyalist weapons in the mid-eighties. Yet the emphasis on decommissioning hardly ever focuses on loyalist weaponry and the culpability of Paisley and others in contributing to the very culture which causes loyalist violence.

There are still too many of these old school scrotums still involved in the peace process on all sides, lumbering around with all the baggage they bring to the negotiating table.

Is there a new, younger breed of politicians coming through with the vision and ability to make more meaningful progress on some of these issues?

But hey - we're talking about NI polotics, not fighting, so that's hopeful in itself.

The one thing that can be said about Paisley is that he is consistent.

He has consistently blocked any attempts at peacemaking

He has consistently been hypocritical about violence in Northern Ireland

He has consistently refused to make any concessions whatsoever whenever any plan for a settlement in Northern Ireland has been discussed.

He has consistently been a rabble rouser and general trouble maker.

He is possibly the British Isle's most loathsome politician of the the 20th century. (though I can think of at least one other candidate for that title)

I'm not one to sympathize with big Ian, but he is in a bit of a tough spot with some of his own side. Everytime that a Unionist party leader has tried to come to some accomodation with "the other side", he's been deposed by those who were even more hard-line. Remember Terence O'Neill, Faulkner, & more recently Trimble?. The DUP thrashed the UUP at the last elections by accusing them of a "sell-out" to Sinn Feinn. This week, as soon as there was mention of a possible deal in Scotland, elements within the DUP started to raise additional conditions, and members of the UUP accused Paisley of a U-Turn.
Hopefully, there is still room for a compromise that both parties can sign up to.
However, it is clear that some powerful figures within the DUP want nothing less than a return to the good old days, when Taigs knew their place!

For myself, I'd rather they just put this bloody NI Assembly in place, and anyone who doesn't want to turn up to do the governing can be replaced by the guy who came second in the polls. I wish Blair and Aherne had the balls to say "Well Ian, it's your choice - you can share power alongside Adams and McGuinness, or you can refuse and give them absolute power." That'd sort the old bastard out.

Leaving it "on the long finger" really ain't an option. If you sign direct rule over to Westminster, the Catholic 50% shout and scream. If you sign direct rule over to Eire, the Protestant 50% shout and scream. The only option is to give them the power between them.

My big worry is that they don't *want* the responsibility. To their credit, whatever they've done in the past, I think Adams and McGuinness are up for it. But I'm not convinced the DUP in general have bought into it enough to back their leader(s).

Graham.

This is anything but an anti protestant thread. The protestant community in the North of Ireland need something sorted out over here as much as nationalists. They have their monthly bills appearing on bank statements like the rest of us.

Progress has been made, If you would have asked me twenty years ago what's the chances of the PIRA disarming and disbanding, I doubt I would even of answered you.

Let's look at the changes in twenty years. The two old parties, the S.D.L.P. (Still don't like protestants), sorry joke. And the Ulster Unionists Party were the two main parties. The swing to the D.U.P. and Sinn Fein came when things began to move, PIRA ceasefire held,prisoners released and North/South government bodies in place.


Nationalists saw it was Sinn Fein who were at the sharp end and could make progress, Unionists felt the D.U.P. were the party that could preserve the union. It was a pity the D.U.P. didn't take the loyalist paramilitaries on board, something the Ulster Unionist are currently trying to do.

Taking guns of people is the easy part, taking their will to use them isn't so easy. The D.U.P. fell out with the U.V.F. over the P.U.P. standing againist them in local elections and David Ervine reminding them of their past involvement with a number of groups with a colourful past.

Sinn Fein don't look towards republicans for their votes, they have now the middle class catholics on board at the expense of the S.D.L.P. Many are young people want bread and butter issues dealt with and the shinners are delivering.

All we hear from the D.U.P. is NO SURRENDER and ULSTER IS NOT FOR SALE. Words that echo fear more than anything else.

There has to be progress made here sooner rather than later and we must remember none of us are without sin.

Either you and your party take your seats at the table, otherwise we are inviting all other parties to come on board and begin the task without you. I imagine within days they would have their feet under the table.

He was interviewed on local television yesterday and today and he appeared to be loving the attention. He had a smug grin on his face and more or less said, people are watching me, and what I say goes.

Today he asked for another 38 million pounds to be give to the victims groups, and got it. All this money for victims groups, I had family killed during the troubles and within a year the government had paid out compensation,as they did in most cases, so why should more money be poured in ? I am sorry for families who suffered losses, but where else in the UK is it happening ?

Not much chance of that DS. Its not the way Blair operates. He's at least ten times smarter than anybody else who has occupied that office in living memory. And to paraphrase Dame Edith Evans , I think you're confusing him with someone who gives a shit....

For the last forty years successive English governments have been putting an avuncular arm round Paisley's shoulder and saying, Come on Ian - be reasonable.....and he's made each and every one of them look like complete dipshits. Blair's not daft, he will keep his hands in his pockets.

Unless MI6 managed to get that picture of Paisley in bed with a choirboy....in which case some underling will be despatched with message - we have your balls in one hand and the potato peeler in the other. Blair will be leaving his smile that he keeps in a jar by the door for another photo opportunity. And he's quite sincere in that.

Unless...I think maybe we're all f---ed, yet again.

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.

Paisley's attitude is exactly that of his predecessors, who were the root cause of the troubles. For the protestant, loyalist, hardliner it's about supremacy, and that will continue to get in the way of peace at least until this evil man dies.

I pray that day will soon come.

I am totally convinced of the sincerity of Sinn Fein and the Nationalists, and, rather than destroy Stormont, I would give control to them, and see Paisley having to go Cap in hand to Gerry Adams, for recognition of his party.

In my book turnabout's fair play.


Just my two penn'orth, which will doubtless be shot down in flames
Don T.
