With this bleak scenario in mind and believing passionately that it is possible to be both engaged and reasonable, Norman Porter advocates a new strategy for unionist renewal. Currently a member of the Ulster Unionist Party, he none the less criticises unionisms tendency to paint itself into corners and argues that the cherished union with Britain - a perfectly valid link, in his opinion - should encompass an enlarged vision of the scope and nature of politics, and a more open-handed and pro-active attitude to non-unionists.
