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.”
