‘Hypocrisy’ of SNP crit­ics

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - AGENDA -

SIR, – Your let­ters page is once more sim­ply burst­ing at the seams

each day with “di­vi­sive rhetoric” aimed at the SNP and their MPs.

How­ever, they have the largest mem­ber­ship of any po­lit­i­cal party in the UK and re­cently over­took the Tories in mem­ber num­bers. They are also the largest party elected to the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment.

The con­clu­sion there­fore is that the ma­jor­ity of Scots are of the opin­ion that the cur­rent Scot­tish Govern­ment headed by the SNP is a case of “bet­ter the devil you know” when viewed against the West­min­ster Tory and Labour ca­bal of in­com­pe­tents who are tak­ing a wreck­ing ball to the fu­ture pros­per­ity of the UK.

The hypocrisy is as­tound­ing when there is not a thing writ­ten in your let­ters col­umn by cor­re­spon­dents re­gard­ing the dou­ble stan­dards ap­plied by West­min­ster in their ap­proach to the Rus­sian govern­ment and that of Saudi Ara­bia, both im­pli­cated in mur­der. The Tories are mak­ing sure that we are still sell­ing mu­ni­tions to Saudi when sanc­tions are im­posed on Rus­sia. Tak­ing this one in­stance, give me the Scot­tish Govern­ment any day.
