Important lessons to learn from history

I couldn't agree more with Mr Tom Robinson (Write Back, September 27).

These disaffected DUP members, as he calls them, should study some history, as most nations developed by some sort of disparity.

Even the Plantation and creation of the province of the six-county Ulster which exists today came about with violence, subjugation and force.

It's unfortunate and detrimental that they digress and have such short memories, but most narrow-minded people do.

All it boils down to is their intolerance to other people's beliefs

Move on. This is the 20th century. There are other creeds and faiths besides your own.
