Enda's call for unity is a misread of the voters

Published 22/07/2016

Might I respectfully suggest that Enda Kenny is woefully mistaken if he believes that the majority of the population of Northern Ireland are prepared to consider a 32-county republic in an effort to remain within the EU.

The two issues are not complementary by any means. We may, as a region, have voted to remain within the EU. But a clear majority of UK voters - of which we are but a small part - voted to leave and we have to respect that.

Better the devil you know.
