Demise of the SNP

Campbeltown Courier - - LETTERS -

Sir,

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.

Ken McCoy, Camp­bel­town.
