Nationalists display wisdom of Solomon

Peter Robinson is in the headlines (News, October 2), telling us of the security and attraction of the Union not only for unionists, but for nationalists, too.

Yes, many nationalists prefer UK status to Irish economic uncertainty. But what they don't like is this menacing marching.

Many nationalists take the long view, with parallels to King Solomon when presented with a baby claimed by two mothers.

Just as King Solomon suggested splitting the baby in two, knowing the real mother will allow the other woman to keep the child instead, many nationalists have allowed the unnatural identity, formed in the fear, guilt and anxiety of the Planter, to have its way to avoid it completely destroying their 'child', or Ireland.
