Garland: what price unity?

It looks as though the normally mild mannered, concilliatory Unionist commentator Roy Garland has run out of patience:

“The real cause of conflict is the voices of dead generations who call for Irish unity at all costs. No single group, dead or alive, has the right to arbitrate on the future shape of political relationships in these islands.”

However he finished by saying:

“…grounds for hope remain because most people know that a return to violence would be disastrous and would not have support. There is logic to the peace process and we must hope that this logic, rather than the madness of violence, prevails in the days that lie ahead.”

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
