The News Letter has a new columnist, former First Minister, Peter Robinson. In his first column for the paper he writes about a border poll and why unionism should be ready for one.
Advocating for the Union should be the routine duty of those who cherish our link with Great Britain, but beyond the routine lies a much greater task in preparing for the predictable showdown.
I know there are border poll deniers who think such a referendum will never be called or believe that to talk about and prepare for a plebiscite creates momentum that will speed its arrival.
I do not subscribe to such complacent and dangerous thinking.
