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.
