Fear Fer­gus

The Scotsman - - Perspective / Letters To The Editor -

Ru­ral Af­fairs sec­re­tary Fer­gus Ewing is threat­en­ing to “tidy up ex­ist­ing croft­ing leg­is­la­tion” (your re­port, 29 Au­gust). His record in fix­ing the dis­as­ter of CAP pay­ments to farm­ers is so dread­ful, I would ad­vise crofters to keep a close eye on him. I can only imag­ine he is need­ing a fresh tar­get to cheer him­self up! Many farm­ers are still wait­ing to be cheered up by the even­tual pay­ment of cash due them from the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment. One job at a time, sir! ALI­SON FULLARTON Lums­daine, Eye­mouth
