SNP’s shameful record, Daily Mail, B Young, 12/01/21.
THE humble crofter Ian Blackford is keen to remind us all just how high Nicola Sturgeon’s approval ratings are. Quite what that says about the judgment of those surveyed, I will leave others to decide. I just wonder if those who so blindly worship our Supreme Leader have given any thought as to who might have the ability to succeed her as First Minister among her Cabinet? Poorly qualified, over-promising, under-deliverers, one and all. If proof were needed, take a peek at Scotland’s rankings in age mortality, Covid mortality, drug-deaths, academic attainment and productivity tables worldwide. Shameful doesn’t come close to describing it. Tragic is nearer the mark. BILL YOUNG, Glasgow.
