Middle ground won't help us

It was interesting to note that in a recent Ed Curran column he described Northern Ireland as being "not as British as Finchley". Does this mean that he no longer supports the principles of the Belfast Agreement, just as Sinn Fein, the SDLP and Alliance no longer seem to respect our sovereignty?

It also seems with all this Alliance-mania these days there is not a loyal unionist commentator in sight in your paper.

An article even described the Alliance Party as "non-sectarian", but I would argue that there is flawed (or indeed dishonest) thinking in pretending that a "middle ground" between loyal unionism and treasonous republicanism can lead to anything other than a creeping increase in divisive republicanism, increased instability and increased sectarianism.
