A Conversation With Pro-Union Voices

This was a fascinating discussion not only for APs views but the interviewer’s .i come from a northern nationalist background and the interviewer , good man that he is, reflects northern nationalists’prejudices and views that appear to have hardly moved in 50 years. What AP was arguing was making no headway against 50%plus1 version of democracy . And interviewer just ignored, not malignly,the important point that unionism would have no truck with talk of unity and without their input all this talk of UI is just delusional compounded by occurring within a n nationalist echo chamber.thats the point AP consistently made but it failed to register at all.
Here’s a thot, given the interviewer’s refusal(v reflective of n nationalism in general)to consider there’s more to democracy than majority voting why dont you Have a little round table forum on “democracy” with political and esp academic contributors...in addition a further one on , pending UI, how can NI be made to work?good one for nationalism in general and esp to include republicans, if you can find any who would even countenance that.Bit like a mirror image of their Unionist counterparts who refuse to concede a UI or give it the time of day....good luck with that but keep up the good work.
