Coun­cil­lor needs to use a dic­tio­nary

Campbeltown Courier - - LETTERS -


I have re­turned from three weeks away to two Courier let­ters from Coun­cil­lor Alis­tair Red­man.

Mr Red­man trans­lates an Au­dit Scot­land re­port into Scot­land’s NHS that it is not im­prov­ing due to ‘10 years of mis­man­age­ment.’

He fails to point out that Scot­land’s NHS is the most suc­cess­ful and well man­aged of the four NHSs in the UK.

He de­scribes the roughly half of the pop­u­la­tion who would pre­fer Scot­land to be in­de­pen­dent of the UK as sep­a­ratists and na­tion­al­ists and dwin­dling in num­ber.

Sep­a­ratists and na­tion­al­ist are just like Brexit sup­port­ers I sup­pose, but un­like Brexit sup­port­ers cer­tainly not dwin­dling in num­ber, not ac­cord­ing to the lat­est polls.

The fi­nal straw is that he de­scribes him­self as mak­ing mea­sured and rea­son­able crit­i­cisms.

I sug­gest he looks up the mean­ings of those two words. Tony Williams, De­spair­ing Old Man, Mu­sadale.
