JUST when is the SNP going to grow up and abandon its tiresomely childish tactics? The Chancellor has given Scotland around £15 billion extra money over the next three years. The SNP’s response to this windfall is predictably to complain. This policy of decrying anything from Westminster as a slight against devolution or similar charges, designed to garner support for independence, is infantile. Perhaps the next referendum put to Scots voters ought to be whether to cancel devolution rather than seek independence. The rather large amount of public money saved by dissolving an under-achieving Holyrood with its huge infrastructure and running costs could be better spent elsewhere in Scotland, such as giving it to our local councils instead. They would use the money more wisely and effectively. Dr Gerald Edwards, Glasgow.
