Nicola Sturgeon has said that she has promised not to “bludgeon” Scotland into supporting independence. However, every election since 2014 has been about independence, until a week before voting day where the first minister will say it isn’t until she does her acceptance speech, where she will say it is again. Her MPs in Westminster behave as if they are in the citadel of a despised foreign capital, while ceaselessly tweeting, posting and blogging about Scottish secession and how bad the union is for Scotland, but yet not providing tangible ideas to replace it. Her MSPs are much the same except they are on home territory. All this while repeatedly getting less than half the popular vote in Scotland. I might not be bludgeoned, but I’m tired and the constant campaign that the SNP has been running for eight years, it feels like being pecked to death by ducks. David Bone, South Ayrshire.
