Trimble Talks Tough

UUP leader David Trimble is due to meet Irish Government officials today and is expected to seek support for his proposal that Sinn Fein be excluded from politics in the North as punishment for alleged IRA involvement in the Northern Bank raid.

He has called on the British government to recall the Northern Assembly so MLAs can vote on a motion to exclude Sinn Fein from the body and he said if this was not successful,London should use powers it granted itself two years ago to throw Sinn Fein out.

Trimble can talk tough all he wants but I find it hard to believe that he would hold these views if he were leader of the largest unionist party in Ireland's north.Trimble's all talk!
