Don’t de­monise Boris

Scottish Daily Mail - - Entertainm­ents -

The SnP elec­tion at­tack line, at least in part, is the de­mon­i­sa­tion of Boris John­son, with lines like he must ‘have no say in Scotland’s fu­ture’. ni­cola Stur­geon has a se­lec­tive mem­ory here, as she has for­got­ten about de­vo­lu­tion.

For many is­sues, Boris has no say in Scotland’s fu­ture — health, ed­u­ca­tion, law and or­der, are all run from holy­rood, and have noth­ing to do with Boris (and maybe they would be bet­ter run if he were in­volved).

The only way that Boris has a say is en­sur­ing that pub­lic ex­pen­di­ture per head is higher in Scotland than in eng­land. Funny that we never hear about this from the SnP! Wil­liam Bal­laNtiNe,
