A government in disarray
Sir, – I have never seen the state of government in this country in such disarray, and I have been here quite a while.
Ministers falling on their swords because of their immoral behaviour, and rightly so, are adding to the already-total distrust in politicians in this country.
On top of all this, the exposures in the Paradise Papers not only add distrust but absolute disgust. To the ordinary folk struggling to pay bills and survive on basic wages, this only comes as proof that there is a different set of rules for people with money.
With such a tenuous grasp on government, the Prime Minister will be forced to call another election, the Paradise Papers will cause many voters to cross to the left in the hope of a quick response from the socialists, not that I believe for one moment that it would stop the rot.
In Scotland we are now on the brink of being told what we can eat or drink and how much, an incredibly dangerous precedent.
