I'm not sorry to see him go, for decades he pretended to be opposed to the sight of Unionist leadersentering power sharing arrangements with terrorists. Then last year he showed that he didn't object in principle to politicians prostituting themselves to terrorism but that he was merely haggling over the price all along.
The potential realignment of Northern Irish politics could be interesting to watch, a lot of the UUP couldn't join the DUP because of Paisley, so now he's gone there could be a surge to the DUP, but having only one Unionist party is simply not a tenable long term solution so there could be an entry by the mainland parties into the province.
