The Red Hand of Paisley

Former DUP leader Ian Paisley has admitted he used to give his children a slap.

In a revealing interview with veteran RTE star Gay Byrne, the fiery 84-year-old preacher — now Lord Bannside — has also had a dig at ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair for moving the peace process too slowly and at Pope Benedict over how he has dealt with paedophile clergy.

Dr Paisley’s candid interview for Byrne’s Meaning of Life programme will be screened on RTE tonight.
