Sir, – Over the matter of just a few days the UK’s standing in the world has further diminished as the impact of Brexit becomes more tangible.
Sir, – I have to wonder why the fence at the controversial office block being built close to the V&A could not have been built totally from inside the site.
Sir, – The commissioning of the first of Gordon Brown’s two pork-barrel white elephants, known in navy speak as HMS Big Lizzie, will be followed by HMS Chuck. Naval top brass are frightfully proud, of course, but the two carriers have been rightly described by a former chief of defence staff as ‘vulnerable metal cans’.
Sir, - I write with reference to your article about NHS Tayside confirming the ending of endoscopy procedures at Stracathro Hospital (October 26).
Sir, - Mr Roche of Perth wrote a very reasonable letter about the poor look of Perth during the day, while considerable monies are spent on lighting it up at night (October 28) and poor facades in the city centre is one of his expressed concerns.
Sir, - The SNP appears to be set on raising income tax in Scotland as part of a move to keep the support of the ultra left Green Party.
Sir,– Martin Redfern (August 12) praises the SNP for their efforts to end funeral poverty in Scotland, but sadly undermines this positivity by claiming this is only possible due to English subsidies.
Sir, - Every time clear evidence appears, such as the annual GERS report, of the deficit Gordian Knot that an independent Scotland would face, rather than face the reality of massive cuts and tax rises, SNP ministers, spin doctors and apologists trot out the old canards of “we wouldn’t have the cost of Trident or the new aircraft carriers and we could grow the economy to close the deficit gap”.
Sir, – Some parents might have hoped that their sons could leave the intrusive LGBT campaigning prevalent in Scottish schools behind as they head off to Scouts.
Sir, - I see from your report (June 23) that the First Minister seems determined to press ahead with the plan to have Police Scotland absorb the Scottish operations of British Transport Police despite almost everyone who has anything to do with policing the railway being against the idea.
