Elec­tion we re­ally need...

Scottish Daily Mail - - Freeview Primetime Planner -

THe SnP is des­per­ate to get rid of boris Johnson and per­haps see a labour mi­nor­ity gov­ern­ment ‘ripe’ for a bit of horse trad­ing – with Indyref 2 the price for na­tion­al­ists lend­ing sup­port in a loose coali­tion.

Con­ve­niently, the SnP ig­nores the fact that only some 25 per cent of the Scot­tish elec­torate voted for it in the last elec­tion, so its claim to rep­re­sent Scot­land is to­tally in­valid.

Many of the 75 per cent who didn’t sup­port the na­tion­al­ists are as des­per­ate to see the back of the SnP as they are of oust­ing the Tories. If, as SnP chiefs claim, they have a man­date from the Scot­tish peo­ple for Indyref 2, why don’t they con­firm this by call­ing an early Holy­rood elec­tion? Sim­ple an­swer – just like labour, they fear voter ret­ri­bu­tion. GRA­HAM WyL­LIE, Green­gairs,
