Ian Paisley the cause of unionist split

The former DUP leader Ian Paisley (Lord Bannside) said he believed the creation of a single, grand unionist party is a 'non-runner'.

On the possibility of a Sinn Fein First Minister in the future, he said he will have to accept the will of the people.

He forgets that he was the one who caused unionist disunity, starting back in 1968, because he wanted to be El Supremo.

The Protestant people want a single unionist party. Paisley conned a lot of the voters - all because he wanted to number one.

He is all right now. Both he and his wife are sitting in the House of Lords and their son sitting across in the next chamber
