Jeffrey Donaldson ignores the opinion of most enterprise leaders that protocol will profit our financial system

Letter to the editor

I used to be determined to look at the BBC information on Friday evening when Jeffrey Donaldson threatened to interrupt the gathering down once more, presumably as a result of, in his paranoid interpretation, the Northern Eire Protocol is the street to a united Eire.

It ignores the opinion of most enterprise leaders that the Protocol will profit our financial system and if we are able to resolve the remaining issues with the EU it is going to be even higher.

The EU has proven its willingness to alter a few of its usually rigid guidelines in our favor, however Sir Jeffrey’s response to its efforts has been downright impolite.

Even the Ulster Unionist Social gathering resent its irresponsible insurance policies. Nonetheless, let us take a look at the menace to the Union Angle. For the time being there is just one option to get a united Eire and that’s if the bulk right here votes for it.

Proper now, the possibilities that even a tiny minority of Protestants will do that are extraordinarily slim. Nonetheless, the dictatorial strategy to tackling Covid these days, I do know, has disaffected some Catholics.

Add to this the rising recognition that residing in a united Eire can be fairly a shock when it comes to well being care prices, to call however one. Commerce unionists should not have any problem in managing their very own “concern venture” and profitable such a vote at any border vote.

Nor ought to we assume {that a} majority within the republic would vote for unity. Over the previous few years I’ve observed a chill in some residents about transferring that will even have a big affect on their life-style.

Ah however, I overlook the Republican tactic of digging an elephant pit and, particularly, persuading the DUP to go in. The actual nightmare situation will come when the remainder of the UK, properly the English and Welsh anyway, get so uninterested in the union antics that they drive us out.

Recall Dominic Cummings’ reported want that Northern Eire “would slide into the bloody sea.”

Jeffrey ought to know by now that the Conservatives at the moment are English nationalists and care little about Northern Eire and, extra importantly, that Boris Johnson is able to something so long as it fits his political ambitions.

Jeffrey ought to notice that there isn’t a going again after leaping off a cliff.
