E

North Antrim’s Westminster representative, Ian Paisley, has described an email he sent out in error, as being sent in a ‘jocular manner’.

Replying to an email from a member of the public, instead of an individual response, the MP inadvertently sent the reply back to a over 300 others, which has now been leaked publicly.

In the reply Mr Paisley writes: “Mate, I wouldn’t let any government, least of all the NI Executive, track and trace my movements.”

Quickly realising what he had done, two minutes later he issued a second reply, backing tracking on his initial comments.

The follow up email read: “Oops, was replying in a jocular manner to a friend and obviously sent you all an email by mistake.

“Of course I support measures to protect the health of the nation by our government and NI Executive.

“Hope you saw the funny side of that. Ian.”
