Paisley's career just an ego trip

MR Greer's query about the absence of an honorary degree for the late Dr Paisley seems surprising (Writeback, Sept 22). Why would any respectable institution of learning honour someone who contributed so much to the problems of Northern Ireland?

His political career was nothing but an ego trip, intent on destroying every unionist leader trying to promote peace and stability. A man bellowing "Never!" is blatantly aiming at power without responsibility. In time he may receive his due reward.
