Be Optimistic For Northern Ireland
I have just been listening to a ten minute discussion on the Jeremy Vine Show between a Sinn Fein politician called Caitriona Ruane and a DUP politician Arleen Foster. I have never heard anything like it and I hope it is a sign of things to come. Both women were friendly, polite and engaging - free of the old hostilties and displaying a real willingness to work together for the betterment of their country. It's time to be truly optimistic about Northern Ireland's future if these two women are anything to go by.
