NI forced to choose between politics and pragmatism

John Hume, the man described as the architect of the peace process, once said: "You can't eat a flag."
He often argued that bread and butter issues should take precedence over orange and green ones.The battle between politics and pragmatism is nothing new in Northern Ireland but Brexit has brought it to a level not witnessed before.At least 10 business organisations have now raised their heads above the parapet and tentatively welcomed the withdrawal agreement.

The DUP traditionally relies on the support of Northern Ireland's farming community
The NI Retail Consortium, NI Food and Drink, Manufacturing NI, Retail NI and the Freight Transport Association were first to say "yes".For generations, the DUP has comfortably relied on the support of a significant section of Northern Ireland's farming community.But the Ulster Farmers Union - representing 11,500 family farms - has called on the party to consider supporting the draft deal.They said a "no-deal" Brexit would be "absolutely disastrous" for the agri-food and farming industry.
