RUTH Marr and Lorraine Alexander (Letters, November 21) say that Michael Matheson made a mistake and we all should put this saga to bed with a slap on the wrist. We certainly should not. This was an official laptop provided by the SNP for use of government business, not for watching football. The confidential information on the computer would appear to be open to the Matheson household. Both your correspondents miss that point, and as everything involving the SNP is brushed under the carpet, from the missing £600,000 to the truth about the ferry situation and the failure to submit WhatsApp messages to the Covid Inquiry, it is not surprising that they take this view. The SNP claims transparency, but to me it is far more murky than transparent. Neil Stewart, Balfron.
