Ian Paisley

Malachi O'Doherty: Like McGuinness, Paisley settled for terms far short of what he had once incited others to go out and kill for 

The evidence against Rev Ian Paisley in tonight's Secret History of the Troubles on BBC One Northern Ireland is a bit weaker than that against Martin McGuinness, but I wonder how much it changes our perceptions of the man anyway. Ian Paisley was such a towering figure in the political culture we came to call loyalism that, in those days, it was called Paisleyism and a follower of Paisley was a Paisleyite.
