PATRICIA Ferguson, Scottish Labour’s sport spokeswoman, says: “With the Commonwealth Games a few weeks away, let’s hope Alex Salmond sees sense and leaves his Saltire at home” (your report, 9 June). I wonder which flag Ms Ferguson wishes Mr Salmond to wave in Glasgow? And which one will she herself be waving?
Her unionism has blinded her to the fact that there is no Union Flag at the Commonwealth Games. Will we be treated to the sight of her carrying the Welsh Dragon? The Red Hand of Ulster? Or perhaps even England’s Cross of St George?
