Fantastic ‘fact’

Have your say

This is the time of the year when we gather round to listen to tales of fairies and fantasy and it was good of Douglas Turner to contribute one for the enjoyment of readers of the letter page.

But the best tales have a grounding in reality and Mr Turner has unfortunately stretched the bounds of credibility with his offering of “those who turned out for the Scottish election voted overwhelmingly for the SNP”.

As I’m sure Mr Turner knows in fact the majority of those who voted did so for other parties.

However, all good tales should have a little mischief in them with the intent of misleading the reader and I’m sure Mr Turner was successfully being mischievous.
