    Despite my Irish Republican family background and upbringing, I actually enjoy watching the Rev. Ian Paisley (anag: Vile IRA Pansy)! The funniest thing I saw was when Pope John Paul II visited Liverpool in the 80s and I went to be blessed by him. Paisley also went, but for a different reason. As the Popemobile passed the DUP's demo outside the Catholic Cathedral, JPII blessed him - Paisley was spitting feathers! :lol:
  12. ooh I can picture it now!! :D

    Oh, btw I also have a Republican Background it would seem.
    Ever heard of Michael Barrett ?
