Time for unionist parties to join up

As a unionist I wish to raise my concerns following the recent election.

It is obvious that the republican community have used tactical voting, coming together to serve their community and being very successful in the process.

What about us, how do we improve our voting capacity?

Surely the obvious answer is for the unionist parties to come together?

Now that Mike Nesbitt has stood down, is this not the time for all the unionist leaders to do likewise so that the parties could amalgamate and elect a new leader?

Then perhaps our politicians could work together for the good of our country rather individual gain.

Perhaps then we would be in a position where the unionist community could be fairly represented in Stormont.
