“Its good to be among friends. The words of Sylvia Hermon addressing an SDLP dinner in Bangor? I wonder what she meant ?”
“If a moderate, social-democratically-inclined, Unionist is finding herself more comfortable in the company of her moderate, social-democratic nationalist counterparts, that may say something one hadnt expected about the ability of the St Andrews Agreement to drive together the moderate centre in Northern Ireland. (Im still sceptically inclined to regard it as the exception not the rule, though.) But the one thing the British Conservatives did not intend in creating the UCUNF alliance was to fracture the Unionist community along left-right lines and if that is the result of the alliance, it suggests it has misfired in even more ways than one thought.”
Perhaps extrapolating a little too far?
