Put repartition back on table

I MUST disagree with Jo McGrattan (Write Back, August 15), who suggests that direct rule is now the only option.

Jo suggests that Stormont has failed to reach agreement on crucial issues.

But there is another option that may focus our divided people's minds. Repartition is that option for me, which could ensure that we understand that what to many people amounts to bigotry – such as in the anti-Derry discrimination in jobs and the university – has consequences.
