Letter : How Dublin could help unlock the peace process

Click to follow
Sir: David McKittrick demonstrates that John Major's Irish policy is as inept as any of the Conservative Party's other policies ("How Major stumbled into peace", 25 April).

What he doesn't address is the fact that the main opposition parties have wholeheartedly supported the Prime Minister throughout this saga of failure and proved that their understanding of Ireland is as poor as his.

Prior to John Major showing any interest in Ireland, the Labour Party had its own distinctive and practical policies, which it had painstakingly developed over a number of years but then ditched in favour of supporting Mr Major's absurd blundering.

Is it any wonder that the IRA has deduced that discussions with British politicians are a waste of time?
