Robinson needs to put people before business

Published 20/02/2010

Is it not astonishing that Peter Robinson should actively support those who seek to build on Dundonald Green Belt?

Surely it is the job of a good politician to defend our precious open spaces. He should be able to look beyond the end of his nose and weigh the needs of the future many against those of the present few.

I don't know if Peter Robinson approached the developers first, or they him, but there is no evidence that he consulted the good ordinary folk of Dundonald for their views - and yet those are the ones he depends on at election time to keep him in his job!
