Recruiters for Independence
Sir, – The British Conservatives lurch from one stupid statement to another, with Jacob Rees-Mogg and Boris Johnson pretty much telling anyone daft enough to listen there is no such country as Scotland.
They appear to be going out of their way to cause insult, not only in Scotland but in Wales and Northern Ireland, by ignoring and refusing to engage with the relevant devolved governments.
It is little wonder that the latest polls show support for independence at 54%.
Most British Conservatives in Scotland must be bewildered by their masters in England who at the moment are the best recruiting team for independence ever to emerge.
