Nicola Sturgeon is bringing out her case for independence in instalments. Why can’t we be given the full picture now? The answer to that is glaringly obvious, she needs more empty fag packets to write her plans on the back of. The SNP has had eight years to convince Scotland that it has a currency plan, a fix the deficit plan, a plan to avoid a hard border with England, a plan to continue pension payments and more. The fact is that the general plan has never changed: “Don’t ask silly questions, just vote for us and everything will be okay.” Ian Balloch, Grangemouth.
