Savings can help us avoid sell-offs

Surely the selling-off of Belfast Harbour is madness when there are so many savings which could be made throughout Northern Ireland - more than £1bn spent every year on keeping us separate.

Why keep excess capacity, when it is obviously not needed? One needs look no further than education and the tens of thousands of empty desks and still we produce more than the norm of under-educated 15-year-olds.

What have the Ministers of Health and Education done to reduce the costs and at the same time improve the effectiveness of their services, for which they have been responsible for years?
