Yes, Denis Mayne (‘There has been no DUP protest over Wells remark,’ June 5), some things appear to have remained unchanged for 200 years.

Jonathan Bardon, in his book ‘A History of Ulster,’ writes of the 1798 Rebellion:

“The insurrection in the south had been a peasant jacquerie characterised by sectarian killings”.
