Debate should strengthen Union

I disagree with Terri Jackson (‘Nonsense article about Irish unity,’ Nov 6) that the News Letter should not print articles such as that by Walter Ellis (‘Within a generation of Irish unity, unionists will have found their place,’ Nov 2).

Like Terri I don’t agree with Walter Ellis but such articles stimulate debate and encourage counter responses to articulate the pro Union case such as that made by Henry Hill (It is nonsense to think that Brexit shifts NI’s interests away from UK,’ Nov 3).

Indeed such a process is healthy as it sharpens and broadens the unionist mindset; something which should actually strengthen the Union.
