If you'd said even to me when I first came into office in 1997 Ian Paisley and Martin McGuinness will be shaking hands, sitting down together, and governing Northern Ireland, I would have thought you were completely mad. But it happened, and whatever the past of Martin McGuinness I don't think it's inappropriate, indeed I think it's absolutely right today, at this moment of his passing, to remember what he did for peace, what he did for the island of Ireland, and for Northern Ireland, and to remember his leadership in resolving one of the great conflicts in the world.
