NEIL Mackay’s article (“SNP hostility to the press is a direct assault on democracy”, February 9) is a prime example of how the latest revelations and outrageous obfuscations from the Salmond scandal, and the acrimony, infighting and rumours inside the SNP, have provoked greater coverage and comment by the Scottish press and broadcast media. One day, the whole truth and the role of the SNP, the civil service, the judiciary and the quangocracy will come out. I just hope we are still living in the UK by then – and not in Nicola Sturgeon’s East Germany on the Clyde.
