Ireland on YouTube Part 7 – Ian Paisley

March 6, 2008 at 12:15 am Leave a comment

With Ian Paisley announcing his retirement, here are a few clips from YouTube of the Big Man in action. First, Paisley calls the Pope the Antichrist at the UN Assembly in 1988. Which is of course funny, but even funnier is the news commentary at the start, which reveals that a display of bronze nudes had been removed from the UN lobby for fear of offending the Papal entourage.

Still to come are:

  • ‘Never! Never! Never!’
  • Fundamentalism versus Apostasy
  • Paisley making pancakes in Ballymena

And here they are: >>>

Here’s the famous ‘Never! Never! Never!’ speech in a 1985 rally against the Good Friday Agreement.

This is an awe-inspiring rant by the Reverand about fundamentalism versus apostasy (in two parts).

Finally, here is a much calmer Ian Paisley making pancakes in Ballymena during the Assembly election campaign of 2007.
