Well, actually you're not -- and your question has been asked, and
answered, only the day before ...

Quoting Sinisa's answer:

A work-around for UNION is to do insert the data from both tables
into a temporary table, using twice INSERT INTO tmp SELECT ...
And then fetch the over-all result from this temporary table.
