Worms turn

Have your say

How dare Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson say she will “not accept any watering down of the proposals her party has laid out on the future of devolution” (your report, 1 October).

Her party almost lost Scotland from the Union. Her party almost presided over the dissolution of the United Kingdom.

Her party’s principal contribution to two years of debate (and I thank her for it) was to increase the number of folk voting for independence. I wouldn’t trust a Tory to feed my cat for a day, let alone negotiate more powers for my parliament on my behalf.

It’s remarkable, now that the “aye” and “nae” campaigns have cooled – maybe temporarily – just how many worms wriggled to the surface to claim credit for the No victory.

Ruth and her like should have a care; anyone with a genuine feel for politics knows that – like it or not – independence is not dead, merely dozing.

The increase in the number of SNP members teaches us that, if nothing else – they haven’t joined up to stay in the Union, have they?
