#IndyRef: An Open Question to Northern Irish Unionists (Only)…

In my experience Unionists tend to be the quiet men and women of the internet. Those unwise enough to put their heads above the parapet tend to be, erm, let’s just say, those of more incautious personality type.

In that silence lots of non unionists end up speaking on their behalf.

So, I come to a question. And it’s a fairly open one, but I’m going to put a rigid caveat on who can answer it. That is, no non unionists!.

If all we get is a deafening silence, then let that be the response.

So the question: Do you think that a decision in Scotland to voluntarily and with consent to leave the Union will destabilise Northern Irish Unionism? If so, how? If not, why?

I rely largely on your good will to let this play through in the way outlined above…
