Windrush exposes nature of the beast
Sir – The Windrush affair reminds me of the child migration scandal where thousands of unwanted children were sent away to farflung places because they were an embarrassment to some in this country.
This has been portrayed as being something which happened a long time ago and couldn’t happen again.
The Windrush affair exposes the nature of the beast and that nothing has changed at all.
There can be no doubt that ultimately the blame for what comes out of Westminster lies at Westminster’s door .
However, those in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales who allow Westminster to believe it reigns supreme are partly to blame for what happens.
For as long as Westminster is allowed to rule over us it will believe that it can do what it likes.
I can’t stand idly by and watch Scotland’s name being dragged through the mud.
