    Default Nigel Dodds taken ill at Westminster

    North Belfast MP Nigel Dodds has been taken to hospital in London after taking ill at the DUP's offices in Westminster. It is unclear at this stage what caused his hospitalisation, but he is now said to be in a stable condition..........

    Whatever your politics I wouldn't wish harm on the man.

    I'm glad to hear his condition is stable.

    I would disagree with the man in many, many ways but I would never wish harm on him. Hopefully he can make a full recovery and get back home to his family safe and sound.

    I find myself deeply at odds with much of what he comes out with. However, I believe you have to think of an attempt by two IRA men to kill him while he was visiting the intensive care unit of a Belfast hospital years ago. His special needs son was a patient there. You can then understand how difficult it would be for him not to take a hard line on many issues.

    I hope he recovers fully soon.

    It's a suspected heart attack and very serious one apparently.

    Reliable contacts within the pro-union community. Diane has flown over from The Euro Parl and other family member from Belfast.

    Statement from Peter Robinson. "Nigel Dodds will be staying in hospital over night for observation but hopes to be discharged in the morning."
    Some good news.
