By Stuart Millson. I feel that the Telegraph ought to do more to “expose” the SNP – a notional “national” party, which welcomes large-scale immigration, and seems saturated by general political-correctness. The SNP also supports “independence within Europe” and – despite saying that they wish to remain in sterling (pity they can’t remain in Stirling!) their ultimate aim is a sort of Scottish left-of-centre republic, run from Brussels.
Today, our fellow countrymen North of the Border are facing a great choice which will have a great bearing on what we are all to be: the continuity of the UK, or a Scotland alone – or within Europe, and an England and Wales of county councils – a British Prime Minister no longer at international summits or in G7? (GQ, perhaps, but not G7…) Could it really be the case that Scottish Regiments will one day become the “Scottish Defence Force”, or that James Naughtie might be taken from us on Radio 4, to be made head of a new Scottish Broadcasting Corporation?!
A letter to The Daily Telegraph on the West Lothian Question, by Gregory Lauder-Frost. 'With the Prime Minister seemingly rattled by the SNP and English nationalists equally upset, why is it that the Westminster parliament cannot pass simple legislation which will mean that only MPs from English consituencies can comment and vote on matters relating to England? It is surely easy enough to look at which issues are dealt with by the Scotch and Welsh assemblies and to use that as a guide. Matters relating to the entire UK, such as the Exchequer, Foreign Affairs, Defence, etc., would remain open to all MPs.'
