Paisley just a blip in the ongoing peace process

By Danny Morrison

A few years ago I was speaking in Fermanagh in front of a mixed audience. A unionist supporter stood up and asked impassionedly had nationalists any idea the devastating effect that 30,000 of them voting for Bobby Sands had on the Protestant community. I replied: had unionists any idea of how nationalists felt at a quarter of a million of their number voting for Ian Paisley who had collaborated with the UDA and continually insulted the Catholic faith.
