Opposition has the right to be heard
Sir, Mr Griffin, last week’s letters page,
accuses me of a ‘shocking lack of integrity’.
My offence, according to him, was to fail to identify myself as ‘an aspirant political candidate’.
Every letter I have sent to a newspaper since I was selected as a candidate in late October has contained a statement that I am the Liberal Democrat candidate for Argyll and Bute.
I expect a letter of apology from him.
What appears to have annoyed Mr Griffin are my letters campaigning for work at the Rest and Be Thankful, superfast broadband and mobile phone coverage throughout Argyll and Bute and sufficient allocation of Scottish Government funding to the council to stop threatened cuts.
Mr Griffin is upset because you printed a few letters from me criticising the SNP Government regarding the above matters.
However, the SNP can’t complain about lack of coverage because the local SNP MSP or MP have featured on the front page of three editions this year so far.
The local MP and MSP are in a position to make news and can be expected to feature on your news pages.
Those of us who oppose the Scottish political establishment also have our right to be heard and I thank you for printing some of my letters pointing out the failings of the ruling party.
