HOW painful to watch “senior” SNP politician Neil Gray on STV at the party conference try to justify nine years of nationalist government. The successes: “The baby box scheme and the child payment scheme.” No mention of the disgraceful failures of Nicola Sturgeon which earned her adulation at her appearance. Have they forgotten, or refuse to admit, she trashed virtually every Scottish institution? How heartening that some principled SNP politicians had the sense to stay away. Douglas Cowe.
