Adams needs a wake-up call on unification

Published 18/04/2013

So another ard fheis has been and gone and, par for the course, Gerry Adams spews out his usual tired, old rhetoric about Ireland's unification.

He has even indicated that he is prepared to discuss this idea without pre-conditions with unionist people.

As I see it, the greatest barrier to Ireland's unification lies with Gerry Adams and his associates.

Contrary to what Adams and co may think, the majority of people in Northern Ireland are quite content with the status quo.

If Adams is sincere in wanting this country to be united, I suggest he makes a start by convincing those who are content with a British-affiliated Northern Ireland that the status quo will remain until we can all agree to live side-by-side as a normal society.
