The Union isn't artificial, Anna

I WISH to inform Anna Lo that there is nothing artificial, or sectarian, about a unitary state embracing both Great Britain and Ireland (News, March 21).

Since time immemorial, people have traversed between the islands, forming a reasonably cohesive unit. It is perfectly justifiable to maintain a union.

The 1920 two-state settlement was a compromise agreement, accepted by unionists, even though several thousand of them were cut off from their natural affiliation with the British mainland.
