Parties need to work for the common good

I AM an enthusiastic follower of the Belfast Telegraph's campaign for a change in politics here.

As a city-centre trader, I had considered that we might well be in for more disruption during the Haass talks and, of course, in the run-up to Christmas.

We really need politicians working for the socio-economic good of Northern Ireland, not for nationalist/republican, or loyalist/unionist aims.

Politicians need to be able to show absolute respect for all the communities and be absolutely respected by all the communities.
