Positive-case-for-the-Union update #9

(See here for the whole story.)

Northern Ireland’s politicians seem keen to get involved in the debate at the moment, with the latest contribution coming from Lee Reynolds, Director of Strategy for the Democratic Unionist Party, writing on the Slugger O’Toole blog.

The Unionist case needs a Scottish and non-party political voice that will sell a positive narrative.”

Reynolds’ piece runs to over 750 words, concerning itself entirely with the need for the Unionist case to be made positively rather than negatively and insisting that the FUD camp needs to “sell the benefits of our Union”. Unfortunately, perhaps due to pressures of space, Mr Reynolds was not able personally to specify in the article what any of those benefits actually are. We’re confident someone will soon.

    The positive case for the Union is that with the Union we wont be reduced to gnawing on the bones of our countrymen as civilisation collapses around our ears.

  2. Bugger (the Panda) says:

    chuckle, chuckle

  3. Patrick Stirling says:

    I'm not swayed by your argument so far.
    Why don't you try presenting some evidence that  civilisation would collapse around our ears and we would be gnawing  at the bones of counrtymen?

  4. RevStu says:

    I'm going out on a limb and suggesting that might have been sarcasm.
