IT has been no surprise that Nicola Sturgeon has expressed her disapproval of Ruth Davidson’s appointment to the House of Lords. Narrow-mindedness is one of Ms Sturgeon’s greatest failings. Whether it be right or wrong the Parliament of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is divided into two Houses, and that will remain the status quo until constitutional matters in these islands are altered. As we are all aware the UK is not alone globally in having two parts to its parliament. But alas it seems that Scottish nationalism is a breeding ground for discontent and uncharitable behaviour. It has certainly led to obvious divisions throughout Scotland within families and between friends. It is my view that it can only lead to Scotland’s downfall economically, politically and internationally. Scotland deserves better. Robert IG Scott, Ceres, Fife.
