Mak­ing Scot­land ‘the best coun­try’

The Press and Journal (Highlands & Islands) - - Opinion -

SIR, – Fur­ther to your fea­ture (P&J, Jan­uary 11) it ap­pears that our cash-hun­gry coun­cils in Scot­land are go­ing to in­crease our taxes. This on top of on­go­ing cuts to ser­vices, and tax­pay­ers al­ready hav­ing to sus­tain the huge white ele­phant that is our de­volved Scot­tish Par­lia­ment at Holy­rood.

Surely the time has come to abol­ish our fail­ing ex­ist­ing party po­lit­i­cal sys­tem of gov­ern­ment. There has to be a bet­ter way of gov­ern­ment for Scot­land than this per­pet­ual squan­der­ing of pub­lic money.

For the com­mon good it’s time to cre­ate a non-party po­lit­i­cal sys­tem for our small coun­try, where only peo­ple with in­tegrity and com­mon sense get elected.

Scot­land would then truly be­come “The Best Small Coun­try In The World”. Ge­orge Em­slie, Bal­go­wnie Gar­dens, Bridge Of Don
