Demand is against will of the people
SIR, – The SNP have demanded another referendum on Scottish Independence. Note “demanded" – against the will of the Scottish people (2014) and from a minority government. The prime minister spoke on behalf of the UK Government and quite rightly rejected the demand which would be bad for the UK, bad for Scotland and bad for us all.
A referendum cannot happen until the Scottish people have had the chance to see not only how our new relationship with the European Union is working, but how the SNP have performed on education, the NHS, and all other devolved matters which now rest with Holyrood and the SNP Government. If the last 10 years are anything to go by I would not hold my breath for any improvement. Another referendum campaign will not solve the challenges this country will face and merely deflects from the issues impacting it.
Why does Nicola Sturgeon not have a referendum on whether or not we want a referendum? With the council elections due on May 4 it should be relatively easy to arrange. Jim Bruce, Edinmore Drive, Daviot
