Scott Macnab (your report, ­
11 June) highlights the surreal contradiction in Scottish politics at present.

The telegenic Nicola Sturgeon was the surprise hit of the general election campaign and now appears to have gone down well on a US light entertainment TV show.

Opinion polls tell us support for the SNP relentlessly rises – but why? Serious domestic problems persist for which the SNP administration is solely res­ponsible.

Those of us who think the SNP should focus on addressing Scotland’s serious domestic problems and stop obsessing about constitutional reform appear to be largely silent as the SNP PR juggernaut rolls ever onwards. We urgently need a strong voice in Holyrood to speak on our behalf.
