Paisley Jr Resigns Over No Wrongdoing

by | 18th, February 2008

MR Paisley Jr refused to answer any questions today as he read a statement:

“With a certain degree of sadness I have informed the First Minister [his father] of my intention to resign from ministerial office,” he said. “I can’t express strongly enough that I am not going because of some hidden or some revealed wrongdoing on my part.”

No wrongdoing. So why resign?

The Rev Ian Paisley’s grip on power weakened today when his son and right-hand-man was forced to resign from the Northern Ireland government amid a rising tide of sleaze allegations.
