Letters to the Editor Opinion Leo Varadkar doesn’t speak for the nationalists of this island
In a week when Nicola Sturgeon flagged another referendum for Scotland’s independence, we read that Tánaiste Leo Varadkar spoke against any haste in a border poll on the island of Ireland. Who exactly is Mr Varadkar speaking for? Fine Gael, of course – the party that accepted partition. But is he speaking on behalf of Fianna Fáil, Sinn Féin or the nationalist people of the entire island, particularly the almost 50pc of republicans in Ulster? I don’t think so.
