David Trimble can always be relied upon for a laugh. I see that he has forecast that Northern Ireland will not have a power-sharing executive by the November deadline set by the Irish and British governments. The Nobel Laureate and former UUP leader has accused British Prime Minister Tony Blair of threatening unionists and ignoring the failings of republicans when he launched the blueprint to restore devolution.
So far so good. Of course Unionists are being threatened by Blair and his stooge Hain, and of course the same rotten Government turns a blind eye to ongoing Republican criminality. But Trimble then spoils it all by proclaiming that the DUP lacks the "moral courage" to go into Government with the IRA's proxies!!! Sorry, but maybe in Lord Vichy's strange world moral courage is turned on its head, but in MY world, refusing to enter an Administration with the bloodthirsty barbarians of the IRA is a mark of courage and a defence of morality. So, once again, poor Mr. T calls it wrong.
