Robinson calls on Unionists to prepare for a potential border poll

The News Letter has a new columnist, former First Minister, Peter Robinson. In his first column for the paper he writes about a border poll and why unionism should be ready for one.

He writes;

Advocating for the Union should be the routine duty of those who cherish our link with Great Britain, but beyond the routine lies a much greater task in preparing for the predictable showdown.

I know there are border poll deniers who think such a referendum will never be called or believe that to talk about and prepare for a plebiscite creates momentum that will speed its arrival.

I do not subscribe to such complacent and dangerous thinking.
