Wish­ful think­ing is not a real pol­icy

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - FEATURES -

sIr, – Your cor­re­spon­dent Chris­tian Al­lard seeks to en­lighten those of us who are not bright enough to un­der­stand his party’s fish­ing pol­icy, which he tells us is “to de­mand the scrap­ping or fun­da­men­tal reform of the Com­mon Fish­eries Pol­icy”.

All very com­mend­able but to­tally un­re­al­is­tic. We can “de­mand” till the cows come home, but the “de­mand” will be ig­nored. Once we have left Eu­rope, de­spite the wishes of the sNP, we will be free from the con­straints of the CFP. Wish­ful think­ing does not con­sti­tute a re­al­is­tic pol­icy.
