Letter in the Times 26 April;
I disagree with Carolyn Fairbairn and Frances O`Grady(letter Apr 24) that the Good Friday Agreement is the political linchpin they suggest. Northern Ireland now has lower productivity, greater economic inactivity and significant levels of inwork poverty not seen elsewhere in Ireland or Great Britain. If these structural issues were addressed it would provide work and opportunity for the entire community,and would ensure there is not a return to violence. Were the CBI and TUC to lend their support to inclusive growth in Northern Ireland that would be much more effective in guarding against a return to the past.

President Trump arriving at the G7 Summit in Canada 8 June 2018. Clearly President Trump will not be pushed around by anybody. Is the special relationship with the UK under threat?
