Blame game can’t hide SNP faults

The Herald on Sunday - - TALK BACK -

ONLY the SNP could re­act so neg­a­tively to nearly £1 bil­lion of ad­di­tional fund­ing for Scot­land in the Chan­cel­lor’s Bud­get.

The de­ter­mi­na­tion among the SNP lead­er­ship to feign max­i­mum griev­ance and dis­ap­point­ment at the an­nounce­ments be­ing made was pal­pa­ble.

Per­haps up­per­most in their minds was the need to try to draw at­ten­tion away from the con­tin­u­ing flow of bad news about SNP flag­ship poli­cies that ap­pear to be miss­ing tar­get.

This SNP Gov­ern­ment’s con­tin­ued at­tempts to blame West­min­ster for any­thing and ev­ery­thing looks like just so much mis­di­rec­tion, as its own short­com­ings are be­com­ing ever more ob­vi­ous.
