We need a new party, not just a new statesman

I AGREE with your leading article that Northern Ireland needs a new statesman, or woman (Comment, August 13). But the statesman (or woman) also needs a new party. Northern Ireland does not need a Leftist, a Right-wing, or a centrist party; it needs a People's Party.
