Undeclared bias

Christine Jardine’s dislocated jab at Alex Salmond’s displays of patriotism, spontaneous or ­otherwise (Perspective, 18 July), displays the worst type of journalism all too evident today.

This journotician (Jardine stood as a Liberal Democrat in the Aberdeen Donside by-election) veers between attacking the First Minister on his flag-waving activities before careering into the populist debate about men-only golf clubs.

I do agree with her view of ­politicians basking in the reflected glory of our sporting heroes but, come on Christine: please declare your interest as a wannabe politician for the other side and allow the reader to take your declared interest into account before you paint a picture of the SNP First Minister as a political ­opportunist.
