    Honour in NI's Politicians?

    Honour in NI's Politicians? 19th Jul 18 at 10:10 AM
    Hi All,

    In light of the latest political scandal involving Ian Paisley who is showing no signs of resigning, I wonder if our local politicians have any honour? It is rare for one to resign when their standards fall short of parliamentary requirements, why is this the case?

    Thanks

    As a DUP voter I am appalled at Paisley jr. The hierarchy in the party need to stop defending him and get rid immediately. I am totally baffled as to why voters in his area back him so ardently. He is laughing at them behind their backs. Total scumbag !!!!!!!!!!.
    I started out with nothing......And still have most of it left

    I’ve never been a DUP voter and I never will be.

    No explanation or justification required.

    A repulsive character. He described the Maldivian prison as luxurious - the one where they bang up Christians and political undesirables in their evil little Islamic theocracy.
    All that rubbish about a gallows being built for Theresa may. Ghastly.

    Why they vote for him for Westminster I can understand. Why they didn't back a recall, no idea! Maybe they thought he'd be presented again as the DUP candidate.

    Looks like our worthless blaggard took a first class flight to New York at the expense of a charity when he was already under investigation for his Sri Lanka jolly.
    Not only corrupt, stupid as well.

    Seems his definition of “putting himself out at short notice” extends to 15 days. Odd use of the term “short”.

    Fancy putting yourself out on a first class flight involving a cubicle with a full bed and expensive food and drink? Eighteen year old whiskey, sir?

    As for denying he used a limousine, it seems with BA a first class ticket includes exactly that. Did he fly from London or Dublin?

    Surely this must mark the end of his career?

    They can deselect him and he can run as an independent. Then we’ll know how many actually want this “big fellow” as their mp. If the dup retain him as their candidate, they’re letting him away with more than any gb party would. Years ago, some labour junior minister got fired from his treasury job and was deselected after accepting a case of whisky from a Scottish distillery.

    I was at queen’s the same time as him and I don’t remember him as a big fella. Maybe he kept growing after 23.

    A happy Easter to one and all.

    Let’s all send paisley an email this morning asking him to express his regret at his support for the anti Christian regime in Sri Lanka in the light of today’s horrifying events.
    I’ve just sent mine to info@ianpaisleymp.co.uk

    Well, google Sri Lanka persecution of Christians. That should do it.

    “Regime” - yes, a “flawed democracy “ according to the UN.
    Nice place for a luxury holiday, though.

    Paisley, admittedly, has been demonstrating his well recognized knowledge of tourism, and causing disruption as usual.

    Well, predictably enough, one of the MPs to have their credit card taken from them was the dishonourable member for Antrim north.
    Strange how that gay councillor’s sins are so abominable and Ian’s corruption, greed, deceit and venality are apparently acceptable.

    I love having things I don’t understand explained to me, so maybe some dup supporter or better still, free Presbyterian could get back to us on this.
