What happens to clapped-out Ulster Unionist politicans when they get kicked out by the voters? Why, they line up with Richard Perle to address the Henry Jackson Society on 'democratic reform' in the Middle East and 'other issues relating to international affairs'. David Trimble, as we know is a man who believes passionately in 'decommissioning' the weapons of those who 'use violence and the threat of violence in pursuance of political objectives'. So what on earth is he doing linking up with Perle, a man who wanted to launch a pre-emptive nuclear strike on the Soviet Union in the 1980s and who is widely acknowledged to have been the architect of a war which has to date claimed the lives of over 100,000 people? In the scale of the death, destruction and human misery he has caused, 'The Prince of Darkness' makes Irish republican bombers look like also-rans.
