Constitutional issue settled?

UUP leader Reg Empey has welcomed Taoiseach Bertie Ahern’s comments that the constitutional issue is solved.
“The constitutional question is now settled. The use of violence to achieve a united Ireland is a thing of the past. Many people, including myself, aspire to a united Ireland, but it will not happen without the consent of the people of Northern Ireland,” Ahern said on a visit to Belfast. Mick Hall goes into his speech in greater detail in a piece in the Daily Ireland.
Meanwhile, Gregory Campbell has said the agreement could not form the basis of the future relationship between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic while Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams has repeated his view that a united Ireland will happen in his lifetime. Good to see everyone agreed on the future.
