Denial of nationhood can never be justified

VIEWPOINT (October 4) stated: "Just as peaceful republicanism is a legitimate political ideology, so too is unionism."

Denying Irish people in Northern Ireland their right to national freedom is not a legitimate political philosophy.

Furthermore, there is no justification for British sovereignty over Irish people.

According to Viewpoint, unionists "believe in and hold dear to the Union with Britain".

Out-voting unionists and forcing them to accept a united Ireland is not a legitimate political ideology.

Two wrongs don't make a right.
