Trimble - The media's favourite loyalist thug

For the media Ian Paisley is beyond the pale - excuse the reference - but David Trimble is the media's favourite loyalist. Not for him the trademark loyalist tattoos and strident flagwaving. But when you listen to this despicable little man closely, if you poke with a stick beneath his stone, you reveal inside a slimy creature every bit as nasty as the mob. His disgusting attack on Rosemary Nelson and Pat Finucane in the House of Commons on Friday is just the latest example of a man appealing to the most base instincts of extremist loyalism before Paisley steals all of his support.
