SELMA Rahman writes a very good letter about the need to campaign without a definite date for indyref2 (We don’t need an indyref2 date to be the focus of campaigning, October 15).

However, she poses the question of whether pro-Union voters here would boycott a General Election in which pro-independence parties stood on a clear ticket of independence.

They would do that at their peril, as the results of a General Election would be legally binding and if the Unionists can’t put up manifesto arguments that attract a winning vote, that’s life.

I would not envisage thatthis scenario could justify any court case, otherwise one could say that every General Election with a low turnout in the past is questionable!

Joanna Cherry is absolutely correct to suggest this “democratic event” as a way forward.
