Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Sorry for being a dumb American, but what in this letter might be read as controversial by a unionist?

Hardline unionists regard any discussion of a united Ireland as "parlaying with the enemy" on his terms. "Ulster says NO!" is the stock response to any discussion, however nuanced.

The hint in my letter that a southern referendum vote for unity is not a done deal will be welcomed by some, and some may perhaps take that as a point of departure for their response, but any suggestion England might abandon them is to be shunned. It would be like admitting God isn't a Protestant...

Hence the desperate clinging onto Boris Johnson despite all the evidence he will betray them any moment it suits his agenda.
