If a Kildare Street politician said that, I would ask if he had been on the scutter.

If an Irish media churnalist stated it, I would ask what mind altering substance had been consumed.

What is IP-Junior's excuse ?

Dear, oh dear, where does one even begin with such imbecility?

1. The UK has only existed as a political entity for 300 years.
2. Paisley conveniently ignores the £10b annual subvention required by NI.
3. Never mind the invasions, battles, economic pillaging, political oppression and religious discrimination, eh!

Maybe they have, but the excess on a claim in the 1840's was 1.5m dead. And there was no roadside assistance, people died eating grass in the ditches.

And the home insurance premium was a bit lacking in niceties, what with people being burned out when they had an issue with landlords .

Well his father was hardly an intellectual powerhouse, his anti-Catholic agitation and the conduct of his supporters in beating civil rights protestors off the roads led directly to the formation of the PIRA.

He must be on the verge of an internal DUP power play. They go all "full on" when they're wooing the die hards. Remember Trimble storming up and down the Garvaghy road. Totally out of character but absolutely nessacary to underline your loyalist credentials.

What is IP's selling point to the electorate apart from being Junior of IP ?

I mean Sammy Wilson's selling point is that he san run through a field in his birthday suit for his love. It seems that the Ulster women are impressed.

But what is IP's selling point ? Does he do medical cards like Willie O'Dea ? Is he propped up by the media like LV or Simple Simon ? Does he have ball chasers like that clown Sean Kelly MEP ?

Do you mean, he wants them to pick somebody else as leader, by producing factually incorrect, statements ?

Says the dude who regularly features in the Sin List of biggest Parliamentary expense scroungers, and hardly ever turns up except for a vote on restricting abortion.

Even worse for the Unionists and the Oirish Times, there may be rumblings about the UK getting rid of NI as a cost cutting exercise.

Bit like his lawyers over the Sri Lanka fiasco. His life has been shaped on a diet of narrow religious fruitloopery, bigotry, and privilege. It was never gonna turn out well.

It has a whiff of the 'St. Patrick was a Protestant' unionist claim.

The Normans took over England in that 1000 year time-frame- then they took the crown and invaded Ireland-

Paisley Junior is known to be a bit thick. Britain 'under-wrote' India for quite a long time in order to access its tradeable exports, East India company exports of opium to China and to Europe etc.

The only way Britain could be said to have 'under-written' Ireland is in attempting to garrison it as a way of preventing France or Spain from turning it into a second front in the regular wars with Britain down the centuries.

Correction - India was held for its wealth and an export destination for British made cloth. The Brits, who now claim to have always supported free trade, banned both rival exports to India and even domestic Indian production. India was the richest part of the world in the 1700s and the poorest 200 years later when the Brits were sent on their way. They plundered it.

Truly, the DUP are the finest leaders Irish nationalism has ever had. Any Northern Nationalist thinking of going soft on the National Question won't be long high-tailing back to his own camp after a daily dose of the DUP's poisonous nut-jobbery.

Exactly. The British Empire never 'under-wrote' anything in order to do less than plunder it and use it for their own ends. They even used the unionists if they only knew it or were even able to recognise it.

'Better Ulster than Dorset' for the nuts...

In essence Paisley Jr is a sort of Healy-Rae the Younger of unionism. Every now and then this little parrot comes out with a squawk-of-daddy to keep himself in public view.

The curious thing being that the average briton would find him and his kind to be fairly appalling.

But apart from the invasions, battles, economic pillaging, political oppression, religious discrimination and the fact they never gave us a decent aquaduct, what have the British not done for us?
