Ian Paisley (b. 1926) is an Irish politician and religious leader. He founded the Democratic Union Party and was notorious and controversial during the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s as Protestant preacher who often raged against Catholics, the Pope, homosexuals and any sort of reform in Northern Ireland that did not meet with his personal views.
Portrayal on "Spitting Image"
Paisley was always dressed in a black soutane. His head was caricatured into a furious red face and a shouting mouth. In one sketch he tries to convince God to kill Gerry Adams. Another skit was a parody of the music video of "Dancing in the Street" with David Bowie and Mick Jagger, in which Paisley claims it's time for "shouting in the street".
