It seems Paisley has threatened to break off contact with the Irish government if the Colombia Three issue is not resolved.
Firstly he has a cheek to stick his nose in the affairs of the 26 counties while he lambastes the Irish government for doing the exact same in the North.
Who does he think he's fooling?
Paisley is trying to do a few things
1. Deflect attention away from his unwillingness to help sort out the sectarian attacks in his constituency
2. Try and make up excuses now that the IRA has called his bluff and stood down.
This man is a sectarian bigot who has no intention of trying to sort out the problems we have in the six counties, he is a relic of a time when Nationalists were seen and not heard.
That is not the order of the day anymore, if he doesn't play ball the Brits will have ways of making him co-operate e.g. The Review of Public Administration
