Statement by Nigel Dodds, then Deputy Leader of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), on the Robinson Affair, Belfast (7 January 2010)


"On behalf of the members of the DUP, I want to extend to Peter and the Robinson family our heartfelt prayers and support at this incredibly difficult time.

I know that rank-and-file members and supporters of our party, in common with the wider community in Northern Ireland have been deeply moved by Peter’s statement today. He has demonstrated a level of bravery and courage that very few in public life possess.

Peter Robinson’s contribution to the Unionist resurgence in Northern Ireland over recent years has been immeasurable. He is the undisputed leader of Unionism and we all offer our full and total support at this time."
