SNP posturing a great disservice
Ian Lakin, Pinelands, Murtle Den Road, Milltimber, Aberdeen SIR, – The childlike shenanigans of the SNP MPs in Westminster led by Blackford was uncalled for, unnecessary and unhelpful to everyone! Pointless posturing is all the SNP can now give.
They are a blight on Scotland, they bring dishonour and ridicule from around the world and what is worst of all our services are struggling as Scotland falls behind the rest of the UK!
One could hope for some humility in these circumstances however all we get is bitterness, division and grievance politics. leader Ian Blackford should surprise no one. It is clear that Blackford left the Speaker with no option but to suspend him and it is equally clear that the subsequent departure of the remainder of the SNP group was deliberately choreographed with a view to maximising publicity for the latest perceived insult to the SNP cause and thus by their definition to “the people of Scotland”. Whilst the Westminster parliament can at times seem stuffy and anachronistic, there are certain conventions which it is clear are expected to be upheld. Contrast this with the rowdy scenes regularly witnessed in the Scottish Parliament particularly from the SNP benches and you realise that such juvenile behaviour is no more than can be expected from these embarrassing representatives.
