Madam, – Alex Orr implicitly concedes that the GERS figures are fairly accurate, and that an independent Scotland would face a deficit of around 7% of GDP, by failing to answer them in his letter (Fiscal straitjacket ditched in indy Scotland, Courier, August 27).
Madam, – Drugs deaths in Scotland are appallingly common. Being an echo chamber of “progressive” liberalism, the SNP cannot muster anything in response beyond decriminalisation, “safe” injection facilities, tackling dealers and support for addicts.
Madam, – I wish to address the issues raised by Jenny Hujl in her column of March 20, (Alex Neil and Jim Silars have exploded myth of SNP unity on Brexit, Courier.)
Sir, – I watched Willie Rennie at FMQs complaining that the health and welfare of Scottish police officers is not receiving enough support.
Madam, – The people who claim leaving the EU on World Trade Organisation terms would be a “disaster” are those who said the same if we didn’t join the Eurozone.
Madam, – I read the other day about Jacob Rees-Mogg’s campaign to be elected MP for Central Fife in 1997 and couldn’t believe he was unsuccessful!

Madam, – So Labour shadow chancellor John McDonnell has confirmed he would grant Nicola Sturgeon IndyRef2 whenever she wishes (Labour would not block second referendum on independence, Courier, August 7).
Madam, – Now the majority of the candidates in the Tory leadership election have confessed to past illegal drug use, a troubling question arises: Was the ‘war on drugs’ a hoax?
