Alien nation

A unionist contributor (Letters, 26 December) who conducted a relentless vendetta aimed at Alex Salmond complains about “vilification” from SNP supporters and appeals for tolerance. Then Roger Cartwright (Letters, 27 December) hurtfully says I am “from another planet”.

However, if an alien were to arrive on Earth and read the contributions from Unionists in the Letters pages, he would be hard-pressed to work out who were the victors in the referendum.
