Nicola Sturgeon stated last week: ‘Independence does not guarantee a better future.’ Andrew Wilson has been stating for years: ‘Independence will be hard with no guarantee of success. In 2019 he said: ‘Independence would mean more, not less austerity.’ One question: why do they want to make life hard’ for the people of Scotland when there is no ‘guarantee’ of a better future? Separatists are clearly happy for themselves and future generations to have a very uncertain ‘hard’ future with ‘no guarantee of success’. The only winners in this are Nationalist MPs and MSPs, who are on a massive gravy train which they don’t want to get off and conning their supporters. Douglas Cowe, Newmachar. Aberdeenshire.
