Not the only way, no.
But we may be about to force a deeply unwanted and extremely detrimental change on the island of Ireland so I see no reason why that shouldn’t therefore be a catalyst for further possible change on the island going forward.

I hope to be spending some time with former republican activists and prisoners when I’m in Belfast next month, and look forward to hearing their thoughts first hand.
