The 'unity' debate unfolds at Open Unionism
Over at Open Unionism a debate on a single unionist party is taking place. Burke's Corner makes the case that unionism should realign. Bobballs sets out the case against, aided and abetted by St Etienne (nice kit). I am very sceptical about the argument for a united unionist party. I don't think that healthy unionism can be a monolith, I don't believe that moderate unionists can support a party featuring some of the current crop of DUP representatives and I don't believe that a single party can offer Northern Ireland voters equal citizenship. I will make a further sortie on this subject later in the week. Do pop over to Open Unionism though and read both sides of the debate. They are particularly articulate expositions.
