Scotland has a new hero. A fearless woman who has principles and stands up for truth and honesty. A tough but fair woman who has the courage to say unequivocally that neither the emperor nor the empress is wearing clothes. She has challenged Police Scotland to arrest her for stating entirely inarguable facts. If the authorities did choose to do so, they would be making the biggest mistake they have ever made. Scotland would become an international pariah as well as a laughing stock, even banana republics would have a giggle. How could we ever have reached such an impasse? How could the majority of this country’s electorate have chosen such utter incompetents to run our affairs? Perhaps this will be the catalyst desperately needed for change. I am sure I speak for the majority of Scots when I say: Thank you, JK Rowling. Alexander McKay, Edinburgh.
