Ian Richard Kyle Paisley, Baron Bannside, PCwas a loyalist politician and Protestant religious leader from Northern Ireland...
The gun is not out of Irish politics.
were appointed by the IRA, not the governments.
I was telling the truth, I said I was very, very worried. At that time I was in the midst of trying to get a way whereby this would not happen. And it has happened. My words have been proved to be right.
There is a finger pointing tonight at IRA-Sinn Fein.
there is no excuse for it; it has to stop.
There is great anger, ... ... here is a government which is meant to be fighting terrorists doing deals with terrorists.
It is nothing short of deception and lies to portray this deal as strengthening the union (between Northern Ireland and Britain), ... complete and total sellout of our province.
is a hollow gesture, because we don't want words. We want actions.
Will unionist demands for open, verifiable, photographed and witnessed decommissioning be adhered to or not? ... The day for deception is over. The day for the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth has come.
Today was to be the day when the gun was to be finally taken out of Irish politics.
This was designed to be a further concession to Sinn Fein,
We don't accept their word, ... If they turn to violence, that is their doing, and they will turn to violence if they don't get their way.
Bertie Ahern, your writ does not run here in loyal Ulster. Any man that talks to Sinn Fein or the Dublin government about the internal affairs of Northern Ireland is a traitor.
Do they think that the people of Northern Ireland are fools?
Entrance to government cannot be dependent on a date but only when terror and crime carried out by those allied to a political party is gone forever.
The role we play is savior of the union,
It would be naive to take the IRA at its word,
A foreign government has more say over Northern Ireland than the people of Northern Ireland.
The way that it is to be implemented is that those that use or threaten violence are excluded and prisoners will be kept in unless violence is given up for good.
This is a battle that has to be won -- no ifs, no buts!
a man (whom) the IRA were happy to do the job.
There was no agreement between us, there is a great gulf because the southern government still thinks the IRA should be there and by right should be taking part in these discussions and by right should be in any future government of Northern Ireland.
There were no photographs, no detailed inventory, and no detail on the destruction of these arms. To describe today's statement as transparent would be the falsehood of the century,
The more the search-light is put on this, the more we discover there is a cover-up.
The North can be a deceptive place; it is not a done deal
Then we have the beating of the chest of Mr. Trimble, and the showing of his muscles, ... And he said never would he be at the table to negotiate with the IRA.
Take it from me that your condemnation and further exhortation to the leaders of IRA/Sinn Fein is useless in the present drastic and tragic circumstances of Northern Ireland. When are you going to take action?
In so far as it goes, such movement is to be welcomed.
I was born in the island of Ireland. I have Irish traits in me - we don't all have the traits of what came from Scotland, there is the celtic factor... and I am an Irishman because you cannot be an Ulsterman without being an Irishman
We are not going into government with Sinn Fein
We're on the verge of civil war in Northern Ireland. Why? Because if you take away the forums of democracy you don't have anything left.
I believe that Northern Ireland has come to a time of peace, a time when hate will no longer rule.
Come Friday, the world will see what the Protestant people really think of this so-called peace process, which is really a surrender process.
Never confuse sitting on your side with being on your side.
Unsaturated fat is an outrage.
Line dancing is as sinful as any other type of dancing, with its sexual gestures and touching. It is an incitement to lust.
You can't build the bridge of trust with the scaffolding of lies and underhand deals
I would rather be British than just.
I will walk on no grave of Ulster's honoured dead to do a deal with the IRA or the British government.
I will never sit down with Gerry Adams . . . he'd sit with anyone. He'd sit down with the devil. In fact, Adams does sit down with the devil.
A man who keeps on going; a man who keeps his eye on the ball.
I have never made an inflammatory statement in my life
It was amazing that I was ever elected.
I would never repudiate the fact that I am an Irishman
People don't expect to die tomorrow, but they do take out insurance, don't they?
Don't come crying to me if your homes are attacked. You will reap what you sow.
Catholic homes caught fire because they were loaded with petrol bombs.
The gloves are off. We're taking no more nonsense from anybody.
