Brexit chaos boosts in­de­pen­dence case

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - COMMENT -

Sir, – Cor­re­spon­dent Maaike Cook sug­gests that all politi­cians should unite be­hind Theresa May (Courier Let­ters, Novem­ber 20).

Mrs May and her gov­ern­ment, or rather what is left of it, have done noth­ing but em­bar­rass them­selves and the coun­try through­out these Brexit ne­go­ti­a­tions.

Maaike Cook ei­ther doesn’t care or per­haps does not fully un­der­stand the full im­pact that Brexit will have on our coun­try and our econ­omy.

I am not in­clined to sup­port a gov­ern­ment that has done noth­ing to en­sure con­ti­nu­ity of sup­plies for vi­tal, life­sav­ing medicines such as in­sulin, which has ig­nored the wishes and wills of the peo­ple of Scot­land at ev­ery turn and has spat in the faces of the mil­lions of EU mi­grants who con­trib­ute so much to our econ­omy, our cul­ture and our so­ci­ety.

While I do not sup­port or con­done the al­ter­na­tive from the ERG there is no way this Brexit deal, or any Brexit for that mat­ter, should be al­lowed to go through.

Brexit will do noth­ing but harm this coun­try and politi­cians are right to take a stand against it.

Ms Cook’s sug­ges­tion that Ni­cola Stur­geon is “be­hav­ing like a child” is also par­tic­u­larly of­fen­sive to the 62% of Scots who voted re­main.

Ms Stur­geon has made it clear that if North­ern Ire­land can get a spe­cial deal we can too, not be­cause of border is­sues but be­cause we voted over­whelm­ingly to re­main.

It is time for Scot­land’s voice to be re­spected – it is time for in­de­pen­dence. Jack O’neil. 17D City Road, Dundee.
