Tri­dent a waste of money

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - COMMENT -

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.
