‘The people have spoken’
Sir – The never ending saga of Brexit has resulted in all sides voicing their own definition of democracy, while closer to home the SNP candidate for the Dee and Glenkens council seat Mr Glen Murray has been struggling to come to terms with its painful realities following his recent election defeat.
However you juggle the figures, it was a pretty comprehensive win for Pauline Drysdale.
Despite this, Mr Murray calls those who voted for her guilty of “bizarre” and “deeply disturbing behaviour”.
Insulting the voters does not seem a good move if you wish to stand again, so perhaps instead he should reflect on why what he and/or the SNP had to offer was rejected by the majority of those who voted.
I’m sure that losing an election is painful, but in the words of Mark Twain, “The People Have Spoken - The B******s!” so suck it up and accept the democratic result.
