Trident a waste of money
Sir, - I was astounded to read that Jill Stephenson was angry at the First Minister wasting the Scottish taxpayers’ money by spending £60,000 on an education survey.
Does she realise that in 2006, the UK Government produced a white paper telling us that leasing Trident from the US would cost approximately £250 billion, which in today’s prices would be £350 billion. Now that is what I call waste.
The SNP are by no means perfect, but they admit that, and always try to improve things for the Scottish people.
We must remember that the SNP are the only party who are not taking their orders from down south and I would like to remind Ms Stephenson that the SNP won the election in Scotland by a mile and we will have independence sooner or later. Jim Sorley. 29 Grampian Crescent, Kirriemuir.
