Tonights Belfast Telegraph carries a features article on Tyrone Howe’s decision to persue a career in electoral politics.
Some people might say ‘why?’; I prefer to say ‘why not?’ If I can make a difference and bring my inclusive, open-minded approach to things, it will be a positive thing to do.
And I think I am in a position where I can try and be a force for good. Sports people in Northern Ireland are probably the most open-minded, progressive people around.
I used to write and get paid, now I read and don’t.
