Con­ser­va­tive leader is not to be trusted

The Oban Times - - LETTERS -

Sir, Be­fore the vote on in­de­pen­dence, Scots Tory leader Ruth Davidson promised that vot­ing ‘no means we stay in’ the EU. That’s patently not true.

Be­fore the vote on EU mem­ber­ship she said that the case for Brexit was based on ‘lies, fan­tasy eco­nom­ics’ and fam­i­lies ‘couldn’t af­ford’ it, and that thou­sands of Scot­tish jobs were ‘re­liant on the ex­ports we sell within the EU’. Now she claims it is an ‘opportunity’. I’d un­der­stand if she said we would have to make the best of a bad de­ci­sion but now to claim that some­thing that was lies is an opportunity is be­yond cred­i­ble.

Af­ter the Brexit vote she said she wanted the UK to stay in the Euro­pean sin­gle mar­ket even if it meant hav­ing to ac­cept free move­ment. Now she sup­ports not be­ing in that sin­gle mar­ket.

Now she is at­tack­ing coun­cil tax changes she claimed only last year were her party’s pol­icy. How can any­one trust what they would do in power with such wildly chang­ing po­si­tions?

Not even union­ists can trust her. An­drew Stu­art, Nor­folk Court, Glas­gow.
