Sir, – I was amused by Dick Winchester’s assertion in (Letters, March 24) that we Scots are victims of a “dismal and democratically unequal UK” when it comes to voting in Westminster. Far from being victims, we are extraordinarily fortunate and well represented. Greater London, which includes Westminster, has a population of 9.3million people, 70% greater than Scotland, but on a pro-rata basis nearly 30% fewer MPs than Scotland. On top of that, we have our own parliament with the greatest range of devolved powers in the world. Our appalling economic record means the EU will not permit Scotland to rejoin, which is just as well because being 1% of the size of the EU our influence on European policies would be about zero, quite unlike the very considerable clout we enjoy in the UK.
