A compromise brexit deal is good for all the people in Northern Ireland and Ireland generally. For business and agriculture, as practical as possible. 10 NI industry bodies have voiced their support of a deal, including the Ulster Farmers Union. Our children deserve opportunities which we did not benefit from, growing up through the Troubles. In the words of a well known politician, ‘we cannot eat a flag’. Over the coming weeks and months, fair and proper analysis of a compromise deal shall determine all our futures, perhaps with Stormont playing a role. And maybe even a bridge to Scotland ! As a parent, dare we hope our politicians can agree such a deal !
