A Letter to an Editor – by Tom Cooper


October 25th 2023


When Britain’s Irish Question was about to be sorted, the British changed the question, so it is said. It appears, now, that a British Northern Ireland Minster, Steve Baker, wants, instead, to change the answer.  Baker requires a 60-40 majority in the North to bring about a United Ireland. The call pays homage to the gerrymandered manner in which the territory was set up and how it was run in places like Derry.

The call for a United Ireland is a call for democracy and to reverse a century of British-misrule. A United Ireland will not persecute or discriminate on the basis of national identity. Divide and rule and super-minorities are what Britain does. Baker’s concoction won’t cook well and he should clear out of the kitchen.

Yours sincerely

Tom Cooper

    I’m waiting for the objections that Stephen Collins and Seamus Murphy SJ of Loyola
    College in the USA will raise.?

    Your comments, as usual have my endorsement, Tom.

    And of the less sophisticated readers of the IRISH TIMES, I imagine.

    The Swinish Multitude beyond the Pale?

    But will they have those of philosophers of the standing of as Stephen Collins and Rev Seamus Murphy S.J. of Loyola College in the USA?
