At first I thought: ‘fn cheek, they’re the only two decent leaders we’ve had, plus John Swinney.’
Then I thought, maybe, that’s what they pictures editor meant?
Then I remembered, this is in the Herald. They do mean to suggest that the above two are nae use.
The letter opens:
Much has been written in The Herald on the subject of the possibility of another independence referendum. It is clear that the positions of both camps have become more vociferous, entrenched and vitriolic, not helped by the apparent prevarication of Nicola Sturgeon, the animosity of Alex Salmond, and the asinine stupidity of Boris Johnson and Michael Gove et al.
The writer has clearly not forgotten Johnson and Gove but goes on to the usual moan about the SNP including the also asinine notion that the writer would not vote for independence under the SNP.
My dog, that’s positively OCD. Surely if you really want independence, that comes before any and all reservations you might have about individuals in the movement.
I mean, Kevin McKenna? Michael Fry? Richard Walker? Despite it all, I’d have independence under them as leaders. What if Monica Lennon came out and led the Labour Party to victory with a commitment to a second referendum? Great. Fine by me.
If the writer and the Herald think that Sturgeon and Salmond have not been the best party leaders Scotland has ever had, they really do need to get out more and read more.
