Constitutional issue far from being solved

IN response to Wilma Taylor (Write Back, March 24), who says "the British/Irish problem is constitutional and is solved".
Research which I have carried out in schools in Derry/Londonderry into attitudes among 12-year-olds to the UK constitution makes clear that they are hopelessly polarised and at loggerheads. So in what sense is the United Kingdom 'united'?
Ms Taylor also says "there is no stand-alone flag in the north of Ireland. Our flag is the Union Jack". The truth is that the Kingdom is no longer united, but is quasi-federal.
