Scots the losers in indy row

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - COMMENT -

Madam, – I’m sure Sal­mondgate isn’t the end game for the SNP that many pre­dict and wish.

Their end­less in­ge­nu­ity in kick­ing the Indyref can along the road will save them.

The irony is if they had de­ployed their un­doubted abil­i­ties to trans­form­ing Scot­land’s econ­omy, health­care, ed­u­ca­tion and so­ci­ety in­stead of ram­ming through un­wanted poli­cies – or tak­ing patently un­work­able poli­cies to ridicu­lous lengths and hu­mil­i­at­ing climb­downs – they could have made a gen­uine case for in­de­pen­dence.

In­stead that lack of true con­fi­dence that dogs “wha’s like us” Scot­tish na­tion­al­ists fu­elled an ill­starred “kick and rush” lunge to Indy fol­lowed by a thrawn re­fusal to learn from their mis­takes.

The vic­tims of this aren’t poor old Sal­mond and Stur­geon but all the Scots that they wedged into this di­vi­sive rut. Al­lan Suther­land. 1 Wil­low Row, Stone­haven.
