British PM's new love affair
Tony Blair has forged a special bond with the Rev Ian Paisley, the union and Protestant leader who holds the future of the Northern Ireland peace process in his hands, by discussing their common interest in and commitment to Christianity. A fierce Protestant, Mr Paisley has outraged Catholics by denouncing the Pope as the anti-Christ. Mr Blair is an Anglican who attends mass with his Catholic wife. "Blair is brilliant at seducing Paisley," Irish politics professor Lord Bew said. "This is the most amazing love affair."
