There is room for ‘middle-ground’ politics in Northern Ireland

Alex Kane and I have agreed on many things over the years and in particular I think we both believe that the best future for Northern Ireland is within an inclusive United Kingdom that promotes a sense of interdependence among its people and with good relations north/south and east/west.
