Opposition rules

Official opponents An odd letter from Douglas Mayer (21 February), in which he seems to criticise the Holyrood opposition parties for constantly attacking the SNP government – isn’t that their job? He seems to have forgotten that when the SNP was in opposition they did exactly the same. - sometimes ruthlessly! Who but the SNP criticises everything the Westminster govenrment does, ie, they behave exactly the same!
