Prime Minister's visit the right step at the right time

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 25/07/2016

The visit of new Prime Minister Theresa May to Northern Ireland today, so swiftly after her appointment, is proof that the unity of the UK is extremely important to her.

She made this clear in her first public address as premier, and she is matching her words with actions.

Her presence here today is very symbolic, and also practical.

Northern Ireland has the only land border between the EU and the UK, and the future of this border will become extremely important during the Brexit negotiations.

For all sorts of reasons, Mrs May's visit is to be welcomed as the right step at the right time.
