Just because they sat on an ivory tower didn't admit to being part of terrorism doesn't mean they weren't.I'm no fan of the DuP but to call them unionist terrorist organisation is wrong. there is NO dup mla who have served a prison sentence for killing people or blowing up the country. do they have dodgy connection Yes, have they don't some dodgy things yes, but what party doesn't have such connections or done such thing. look at John Hume, was talking to the IRA while they were killing. he now seen as some sort of hero who helped bring the peace.
the fact remains that all the MAIN party's north and south have a past which is nothing to be proud about. only SF has active members who openly killed people
Paisley snr. was as much part of things as Gusty was and that cascaded down.
I always assumed that was well known, and that those who said it wasn't the case were either protecting the cause or were in denial.
