Demise of the SNP
I note that a correspondent in last week’s issue was predicting the demise of the SNP.
Unfortunately, this seems to reflect the arrogance and contempt that the Westminster government has for its devolved administrations.
It is the arrogance that permitted David Cameron to call the Brexit referendum without having a plan B, that prompted Teresa May to call a snap general election.
The same arrogance currently being shown by our EU negotiator David Davis.
To say that there is a good judgement deficit in Westminster is perhaps an understatement.
I do, however, agree with your correspondent that we should live within our means... although I would first refer him to the letter that preceded his own, regarding expenditure associated with new aircraft carriers and commenting on their vulnerability.
Tongue in cheek, perhaps, but the ‘Mary Rose’ comes to mind.
