Time for us all to pay our way
For too long the political and business decision-makers in Northern Ireland have demonstrated the grasping hand fostering a dependency culture.
The reality of Northern Ireland is that it is six counties of one island under arm's-length political management of another.
If you add to that the fact that DUP/Sinn Fein are delivering an economic package that will further destroy any economic underpinning of the Union, then there are long term implications for fiscal separation arising from changes in corporation tax.
Put simply, we are all doomed in basket case Ireland, north and south, unless we are prepared to pay our way.
