AS IS usual with socialists, Colin Fox (News, 23 June) 
attempts to rewrite history.

The 1707 Act of Union was not entered into “to bail out a financial elite who had squandered the nation’s assets”.

the Protestant Hanoverian succession to the throne. Anything else was subsidiary or a side effect.
