Scots the losers in indy row
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.
