I was astounded to read the letter from Peter Weir MLA (Write Back, April 19), which shows he does not know his history.
Does he not know there was a united Unionist Party until Ian Paisley Snr divided it, forming the DUP? By doing so, Paisley gained power he would not have had as a member of the former Unionist Party. Obviously, the DUP now regrets dividing unionism.
