Doc is all mixed up

Dr. Paisley, rather unsurprisingly, has begun his pre-election posturing by claiming that he will never negotiate with Sinn Féin. If Mr. Paisley is serious about carrying on with rejectionist politics then that is his deicision, but let's remember that this is the same man who felt that Sinn Féin would have to disband 2 years ago. He didn't succeed then and was almost in government with Republicans last winter. It seems obvious that rejectionist Unionism has no better way of dealing with confident Republicans than taking away their ball and leaving the pitch.
