It's a sign of how far we've moved on that no one really cares what Doc Paisley said about our President. It's not that long since normally sane people would have fallen over themselves to express their outrage. The old doc has a constituency to pander to - Middle England wannabes, whose children have buggered off out of the dump and who need their old anti-Irish prejudices reinforced, and Loyalist knuckle-draggers, who're too stupid to realise that Paisley and the DUP despise them. The loyalists are ignored by the DUP until they need to use them as casual boot boys when it suits the DUP to issue veiled threats of violence. The Northerners really ought to wake up. We've already passed them (all) by; in fact the world is passing them by.
