The beginning of unionist self-awareness?

As a small follow-up to the item on the Unionist attempt to 'ban' the use of Irish in Stormont that we blogged on 5 October, here is the UUP's David McNarry stuffing his foot into his mouth:

Mr McNarry said the debate was: "A clear definitive signal that unionists are fed up with the Irish language being thrown in their faces." He said his party rejected any nationalist attempt to smear unionists as bigots over discomfort with the use of Irish. He added: "There is no demand here, just a request, no abuse of anybody's rights and I reject any attempt by any republican to smear any unionist by branding him a bigot."

No need, Daithi, no need. You did it all by yourself!
