Blurred vi­sion

The Scotsman - - Perspective / Letters To The Editor -

I had to reread the let­ter from Mary Thomas (Scots­man 30 Au­gust) to make sure my vi­sion wasn’t im­paired. She ac­cuses Ruth David­son of help­ing bring about the Ul­ster­i­sa­tion of Scot­tish pol­i­tics. Talk about turn­ing truth on its head!

By Ul­ster­i­sa­tion she means that the con­sti­tu­tional ques­tion is at the heart of po­lit­i­cal de­bate, as in Ul­ster. There is only one party call­ing for an­other in­de­pen­dence ref­er­en­dum, only one party that hasn’t ac­cepted the re­sult of the last one, only one party putting the con­sti­tu­tion at the heart of po­lit­i­cal life – and that is the SNP! Union­ist par­ties are merely re­act­ing to this.
