Video: Ian Paisley quips that the future is orange at Westminster
AS the DUP's 10 new MPs lined up for a photograph at Westminister ahead of crunch talks with the British prime minister Ian Paisley couldn't resist quipping that the future was orange.
The North Antrim MP responded to party leader Arlene Foster's comment that "the future's bright" with "the future's orange" - a reference to both the Orange Order and an advertisement campaign by former telecoms giant Orange.
However, as the day wore on there was much debate among the British media as to whether he had said "orange" or "alright".
BBC Journalist Chris Mason rang Mr Paisley to seek clarity and was told the MP couldn't remember what he had said.
