A truly good day for all!

His only crime was to voice the official DUP attitude.
He would have got away with it if it had stayed in Northern Ireland, or at least on the island of Ireland. When the British mainstream press got hold of it, coming up to a General Election, he has been forced to resign.
If Laura Lee is successful in her campaign, now that would be a blow to the bigots, and a real victory to freedom.
People may say things they otherwise would keep quiet when they are stressed.
People DONT say things contrary to their beliefs however.
All that's happened is that because his wife is sick ,he forgot to mask his true thoughts on the subject......therefore he shot himself in the foot.
He is entitled to his views /opinions whatever they may be....what he isn't entitled to do is try tell us one thing while he actually believes the polar opposite.
Hopefully his wife recovers however(Disgusting that he now uses her illness as a very poor excuse for being caught out )

How gullible does he think the public is? Using his wife's illness as an excuse for spreading homophobia, pathetic attempt at backtracking. Good riddance to him and his ilk.
And it gets better.......
And more hypocritical..........
The assembly makes a mockery of Jim Wells apology and resignation, and rejects Gay marriage motion for fourth time, mostly through the DUP vote.
Steve - if the majority of mainstream British press was not controlled by Murdoch then there would be a whole lot more coverage.
The DUP have been shoveling this notion that they are the most important political party in the UK because in a coalition government their seats will decide the next gov, therefore everyone should vote for them and they can make demands from the torys(who they are aligning with)when they get into power.
The people in the rest of the UK could come in for quite a shock if they got to hear even 1/2 the nonsense these dinosaurs believe and try to inflict upon people.
There is a facebook group called "The DUP do not have our vote" which in the space of a few days had more members/likes than the DUPs official FB group. I think this helped in the decision making for aul wellyboot head to resign today.
Martin - in your blog(you may not have known) but police are investigating wells because on Saturday night he was canvassing in his area and came to one his (now ex) voters who just happened to be lesbian and decided to have a rant at them, on their doorstep, about how badly they live their lives. He went back a few times later on Saturday evening "to apologise" but the couple said they felt harassed by him.
1 Dinosaur down - many more to go
Unfortunately the DUP are all the same, the same ignorant mindset, remember the Former Stormont health minister Edwin Poots so called ban on gay men giving blood in Northern Ireland. This was outrageous.
There will I think be no Health Minister now till after the elections, it is just crazy
