Madam, – I regret to have to tell arch critic of the SNP Alan Bell of Kirriemuir that his simplistic analysis of Scotland’s economic problems is, to quote an oft used word by the Rev. John Cameron, risible to say the least (Misery over expenditure, Courier, August 26).
Madam, – The publication of the latest GERS (Government Expenditure and Revenue for Scotland) figures has triggered a now traditional feeding frenzy (Claim £12.6bn deficit is no barrier to independence, Courier, August 22).
Madam, – At last someone has had the honesty to call the scale of drug addiction and deaths in Britain, and Dundee in particular, an “epidemic”.
Madam, – Over the last few days Boris Johnson has been talking a lot about democracy.
Madam, – The recent statement by the United Nations that beef consumption should be reduced to prevent excess greenhouse gases, in particular methane, from entering the atmosphere is on the whole correct.
Madam, – It’s a city of contrasts, my city.
