Letter: Ulster conundrum

Sir: If the Protestants (Unionists) in Northern Ireland vote for the so-called Good Friday Agreement they will be voting with Sinn Fein, the IRA, and the SDLP.

If the Catholics (nationalists and republicans) vote for the agreement they will be voting for the Ulster Unionist Party and for the sectarian extremists of the Ulster Defence Association and the Ulster Volunteer Force.

If the Catholics vote against the agreement they will be voting with Paisley, the Orange Order, and the sectarian extremists of the Loyalist Volunteer Force.

If the Protestants vote against the agreement they will be voting with the republican extremists of the Continuity IRA.

What sort of choices are these to put before decent, peaceful people?

What kind of an "agreement" have Tony Blair, Mo Mowlam, and Senator George Mitchell concocted?
