  1. Why wait for him to resign? He’s clearly not capable of doing his job properly. Replace him.

    Sack the man already. Hasn’t he wasyed enough taxpayers money already? Why wait?

  3. “End blood ban or resign.” Doing both would be better.

    He should do both, who does he think he is? He has squandered public money to fund his hate against gay folk it is time for the dup to step aside and let some other party work for the betterment of all the people in Northern Ireland. A bunch of chimpanzee apes could tun it better, after all they went to space and ran tea commercial so how herd can it be. If he does not like gay marriage then he should not attend gay weddings or accept gay folks blood the police should be looking at him with interest like they do others he has a issue with gay folks if this is so let him say so and step down this is 21st century Edwin time to go because you’re abut of a useless git and we have no time off you. I would love to meet him tell to his face what I thought of him and his party.

  5. Not that I like using Wikipedia as a main source for anything (it was the first place that came to mind to look) – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gay_male_blood_donor_controversy

    But if even some if that info about Europe, North America and the rest of the “western world” (Australia and New Zealand) is correct, he’s lying. It’s high time he admitted he’s lost, and bowed out with any semblance of remaining grace.
