Trimble: a summary

In a recent issue of Ha’aritz, David Trimble gave an extensive interview to Sharon Sadeh.

He began by making the political case for the process, and then quantifying some of the gains of the transition from war to peace. He admitted his own mixed feelings about dealing with his former enemies. Identifying two issues yet to be resolved, he explained why these were crucial to moving the next stage.

After giving his appraisal of Clinton’s role in the process, he concluded with his own Unionist view of what John Hume labelled post-nationalism.
