Richard Williamson: SULKERS NO HELP TO PEACE.

Byline: Richard Williamson

I KNOW it's shameful but whenever I hear the words Trimble and Adams my eyes glaze over.

Like everyone else I want to see a peaceful end to the tragedy of Northern Ireland.

But what prospect is there when every initiative ends in a nit-picking row and a sulk?

The only thing both sides have in common is the misbegotten belief that 'agreement' actually means total victory for their faction and utter defeat for the other lot.

Perhaps it is time to clear out the current leadership and their mind-numbing negativity that stretches back over 400 years of bigotry and hatred.

A new generation might just have the vision and idealism to find a solution.
