It is interesting to note that while nearly two-thirds of Irish businesses expect growth in cross-border co-operation and close to half expect the Dublin and Belfast administrations to improve business conditions,
Nigel Dodds, without reflection, dismisses the idea to merge the Irish Development Authority and Invest Northern Ireland, the inward investment bodies in Ireland.
It is clear that the siege mentality still cannot see emerging realities.
