Brian Walker quotes Macauley with regard to the position of the loyalists of Derry:

“The faults which are normally found in dominant castes have not seldom shown themselves without disguise at her festivities; and even with the expressions of pious gratitude which have resounded from her pulpits have too often been mingled words of wrath and defiance”.

And he finishes: “The gerrymander was lifted long ago but its curse still lingers. Nowadays the lesson Protestant Londonderry has to teach the rest of the province is the lesson against triumphalism – Sinn Fein included.”
