sir – Nicola Sturgeon says that, since Scotland has only six Tory MPS at Westminster, Scots did not vote for the current British Government, and therefore policies are being forced on us against our will.
This from a First Minister who has led a minority government since 2016 and gone into a coalition in all but name with a party that polled 35,000 votes in the last Holyrood election.

sir – A wise old Scot once told me: “You know the population of Scotland is roughly the same as that of Yorkshire.”
Perhaps if we kept that in mind when discussing Scottish independence, it would help to keep things in perspective.
